Complete but unofficial results show that the five-year bond issue passed Tuesday with about 84 percent of voters approving the two measures.

The bond issue was split into two proposals. The first provides $122.5 million for school renovations, safety and security, technology and other projects. The second proposal calls for $3.5 million to go toward transportation.

The bond issue will pay for major improvements at both Norman North and Norman High School, including the construction of safe rooms and secure entryways. Each high school will get about $24 million for improvements.
