The Area District Board of Education is asking the citizens in the three county area to au- thorize a levy not to exceed 3 mills. This operational levy will be used in the fiscal year 1968- 69 for the salary of the area superintendent, building plans, and surveys regarding course of- ferings. The remainder of the amount will be used for capital out-lay in purchasing the site and some equipment. The Board has announced the location of the school will be within a six mile radius of 5.6 miles east of Drumright, deter- mined by an independent re- search firm to be the center of the Area District, based on student miles to be traveled. A specific site will be determined by the board when funds are assured for engineering studies, utility surveys and other inves- tigations contingent on the es- tablishment of a permanent educetional facility and the ex- penditure of district tax mon- ies. The Central Tech Area Dis- trict was formed in April 1967 when school districts in Creek. Payne and Lincoln Counties voted to create a vocational- technical entity to provide an educational pro2ram too ex- pensive for the individual dis- trict This was made possible by Oklahoma citizens approvaI of State Question 434 which provided that an area cou!d vote up to and inc'_uding 5 miUs fr operation of an area vocationa!- technical district, but could not obligate itself to more than 5 percent of its valuation for buildings, site and equipment. A five member Board of Ed'u- cation was elected on July 18, 1967, to be the legal entity for this district. Members reside in eaeh of the four zones of the area district but were elected by the entire area district to serve the three county area. Members are: Arthur M. Foster. Bristow. preqdent: A. C. Wiem- er. Drumright. vice-president; Caroline E. Hughes (Mrs. Huh). Cushing, Clerk; Tracy Kelly, Bristow, and William L. Wil- son, Saputpa. This board has been advised by local boards of education, administrators, State Department of Vocatoinal-Tech- nical Education, civic leaders- and citizens throughout the area district. All registered voters within the Central Oklahoma Area Vo- cational-Technical School Dis- trict will be eligible to partici- pate in the election Tuesday. The Central Tech School Dis: trict is composed of 31 individ- ual districts. They are: Cush- ing, Perkins, Ripley, Yale, Deep Rock, Harmony, Hillside, Oak Grove, Sunnyside, Carney, Try- on, Davenport, Stroud, Kend- rick, Bristow, Depew, Drum- right, Kiefer, Mannford, Oilton, Olive, Sapulpa, Slick, Allen- Bowden, Gypsy, Lone Star, Shamrock, Norfolk, Buckeye, Edna and Pretty Water. Polls will be open from 7 am. until 7 p.m. in every district, and voters will vote in the place where school elections are reg- ularly held. The 12 hour voting period will be a longer voting period than usual in dependent district school elections, and is applicable only to the Area School vote. Okiahoma statutes provide that an area district can vote up to and includin 5 mills for operational costs. Central Tech School Board of Education is asking area voters to approve an overational levy of 3 mills for the fiscal year 19e8-69. Funds over and above salaries for per- sonnel and tflanning expenditur- es wilt be used' for capital out- lay in the purchase of site and some equipmen. The State Board for Vocation- M-Technical Education through federal and state financing has agreed to pay half the cost of Central Tech School. The addi- tional 50 percent must be pro- vided through area district (local) taxes. Currently surveys are being made regarding curriculum needs based on area and state employment needs, on high school, post high school and adult retraining levels. Tenative plans are underway regarding staff, building, transportation, and other considerations, which will proceed in an orderly man- ner when operational funds are assured.
