Corpus Christi Independent School District board members held a vote Monday night and approved putting a $100.5 million bond on this year's November ballot.
That $100.5 million bond will go toward three new schools -- one to replace Windsor Park Elementary, one to replace Los Encinos Elementary and a third to actually consolidate Calk and Wilson elementary schools.
Another highlight of the bond will include additional classrooms to be built at Oak Park Elementary, and renovation projects at other campuses as well.
CCISD Board President Carroll Scott said the board expected to approve the package at Monday night's meeting to ensure the safety of the students.
"We're looking at three elementary schools, all built in the 1950s. The old wing school design not very secure, so we are trying to replace those as quickly as possible over a series of bond elections in the school district," Scott said. "It's all about providing some new schools new technology and better safety for our students."
The good news for taxpayers is that the bond will not require a tax-rate increase. Kiii News Reporter Bill Churchwell went Live from the CCISD Administration Building with the details.
