Superintendent Bobby Azam says you never know what's going to happen to the districts when you hand in your numbers. "You can guess, but you'll just have to wait and see."
He says construction for the addition students is in the works.
Azam also says the important aspect if the school changes to 4A will be budgeting buses and drivers to activities and games farther away to find another 4A district as the alignment stands currently.

According to Superintendent Bobby Azam, Andrews Independent School District is 17 students away from becoming a 4A school.
The boom in oil has brought in students and continues to do so each year, says Azam. He doesn't think it will be changing this year, but it may be an issue next year if they get more students.
Azam says it would change how far they have to travel for each of their athletic teams. Much of the traveling would be around three hours away each game, each direction.
With the growth the school has experienced, they've had to add on additional classrooms to each of their campuses.
