TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa school officials want voters to approve a $38 million bond proposal that would pay for technological improvements across the district.

Tulsa Public Schools officials say the money would help the city district catch up to advances already present in neighboring communities.

The election was set for May 14. Tulsa Superintendent Keith Ballard told the school board Monday that the proposal is not just about equipment but also about training people how to use it.

The board says that, if the money is approved, each classroom would be equipped with a desktop computer, an interactive whiteboard, an iPad, a document camera, internet-based TV and wireless access.

The bond proposal passed on a 6-1 vote. The Tulsa World ( ) said board member Lois Jacobs wouldn't say why she voted against it.
