Midland, TX - A small group of Hispanic voters are speaking out against the Midland ISD school bond, saying a new south side elementary school should be in the proposal.
The district says they made the decision to build new schools on the west side of town because of the current growth in that area and the planned residential developments that will add to those numbers.
Superintendent Dr. Ryder Warren says on the south side DeZavala elementary increased by 29 students, South added 67 students and Travis gained 57 students between the 2009-2010 school year to the current school year.
Compare that to the west side campuses where Scharbauer increased by 201 students, Bonham gained 180 students and Greathouse added 93 students.
