Reagan County ISD Bond Election for Elementary School Renovations 11/4/13
CBS 7 News
Reagan County Independent School District is hoping for a bond to be passed in tomorrow's election. Superintendent, Steve Long, says the $14.5 million bond would be for renovations to the elementary school. He says it needs to be updated.
According to Long, the high school was renovated a few years ago and now it's the elementary school's turn.
Reagan County Elementary School has been added onto throughout the last 50 years, and administrators and some members of the community say its time for a renovation. The first section of this elementary school is from 1948 and needs to be updated structurally as well as the plumbing and electricity.
"They need to care about the children of big lake," says Principal Mandy Traylor. “Currently, there are 26 exterior doors […] and with the new plan there would be one main secure door."
Reagan County ISD is hoping to pass a $14.5 million bond in tomorrow's election. People we asked in the community were all on board with the bond for the school.
"I think it's a great idea, it needs renovations," says local resident, Christine Hunter.
"Yes, people need to vote yes because we need a good school for our children to go to," says Ronnie R. Martin.
According to school officials, they do not anticipate any tax increase for residents for this bond election. Members in the community will have a chance to vote in favor or against the bond tomorrow on election day.
