CFAT Breaks Into Small Groups as Bond Tailoring Continues

The Community Facilities Action Team or CFAT is still working to tailor a bond for the Wichita Falls ISD Board. 

They broke into subcommittees tonight to study each component trustees are suggesting.

Tonight the committee also got to see how much it would cost to put those plans in place.

Here is a closer look at the bond components the committee is considering--

a. A Career and Technical Center at Hirschi High School

b. A new Wichita Falls High School

c. Moving Rider High School to the Memorial Stadium Complex either as an entirely new building or utilizing the McNiel Junior High School facility, with a new additional structure.  Then moving McNiel Junior High School to the existing Rider High School facility and adding 6th grade.

d. Additional safety and security enhancements for all schools

e. Any renovations necessary to include 6th grade at all three junior high schools

f. Memorial Stadium renovations

g. The repair of the foundation of Kirby Junior High School

h. A new elementary school for the combined Houston Elementary School/Alamo Elementary School attendance zone.

CFAT will once again meet next week to continue brainstorming and are expected to present their proposal or proposals to the board on February 11th.

That would then give the board about two weeks to discuss the final proposal before the end of February deadline, which would be enough time to get the bond issue on the ballot in the May election.
