Jenks Schools Open Doors to New Education Service Center

Posted: Updated:

Jenks Public Schools officials opened the doors to a new education service center this week funded by a $154 million bond issue.

The new Jenks Public Schools Education Service Center located at 211 E. A St. opened for service July 15. It was formerly located on Main Street before the new building was funded by an approximately $154,230,000 bond issue.

“We are excited to be back on central campus,” said JPS Director of Communications Bonnie Rogers.

According to a reported by the Jenks Journal, Tulsa's Channel 8's community newspaper partner, construction on the Education Service Center began in August 2012. The center will house the offices of Superintendent, Human Resources, Finance, Curriculum, Communications, Student Programs and the Jenks Public Schools Foundation.

“This is an exciting time for the district, we are concluding all of the building projects from the 2008 Lease Revenue Bond Issue. It is all because of our patrons that we are able to have this,” she said. “Because of them we are able to have such a wonderful facility.”

The bond issue also financed the Frank Herald Fieldhouse, due to open in October.
