WFISD Board Continues Review of Facility Study Recommendations
The Wichita Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees met this evening during a special session to discuss recommendations made from the facilities master plan to improve the school district.
The meeting was a continuation of Monday's meeting where each school board member highlighted which facility study recommendations were the most important to them.
The school board looked at six issues that have become a top priority after the results of the study came out including the safety and security of schools, the possible consolidation of elementary schools and the choice program.
Kevin Goldstein, President of the WFISD Board of Trustees says they are still in the beginning stages and no action has been taken on any issue.
Goldstein says these meetings are helping guide the board on where they need to go with the upcoming bond election.
"I think for the most part, we're all agreeing that this bond will be highlighted mostly toward secondary schools or maybe all toward secondary school and then the board will decide on what we can do elementary at all going forward," Goldstein says.
The next WFISD board meeting will be on July 11.
Goldstein says the board is expected to make a decision on where 6th graders should be, in elementary school or junior high.
