Committee formed to oversee school bond spending

LAWTON, Okla._Lawton Public Schools have formed a committee to oversee the spending of millions of dollars in voter-approved funding.

A $30 million bond issue was passed by voters in April. The district will receive $3 million a year for the next ten years. The committee met Thursday for the first time and will meet twice a year to make sure the district is spending the money how voters intended it to be spent.

"As it goes over the course of ten years, people lose sight, they forget, but it's good that twice a year we remember what we voted for and review what we intended to spend that money on to determine whether or not we're on track," said Superintendent Tom Deighan.

So far, the district has allocated $500,000. Some of that funding will help pay for technology improvements as well as new band orchestra instruments.
