Wichita Falls School District Superintendent, Dr. John Frossard, says compromise will be necessary for a school bond to pass.

Frossard sighted several reasons he believed it failed, the drought one of them.

He says its the new board's decision whether or not there will be a bond proposal in the future.

During a special session board meeting, the two soon to be sworn in board members, Bill Franklin and Elizabeth Yeager, sat in the audience.

The pair start their roles on the board Monday.

Frossard says whether or not another bond will be proposed is a decision for Franklin and Yeager, along with the rest of the board.

I think any plan has a certain amount of opposition so we need to figure out how much of the opposition comes from water and how much agreement we can get on any other plan. So whenever we go forward we just need to make sure we can get 51.1 percent,” he said.

Frossard says no bond plan will be perfect, and that compromises will have to be made.

The one thing he said he believes everyone can agree on is the need for safety and security upgrades.
