WFISD Town Hall Draws Big Crowd At Hirschi
On Monday, Wichita Falls Independent School District officials held its second of three informational town hall meetings in an effort to answer any questions the community may have regarding the district's $125 million bond proposal.
The format for the meetings are pretty much the same but Monday's meeting at Hirschi saw a bigger turnout than the one held at Wichita Falls High School last week.
Parents, teachers, community members and even students want to know how Hirschi would be affected if the bond passes.
The second town hall started with a video presentation recapping all the steps taken to get to the current bond proposal.
WFISD Superintendent Dr. John Frossard and WFISD board members then went over frequently asked questions.
Frossard says the meeting are strictly informational and are in no way meant to advocate in favor of the bond.
Folks who attended the town hall say everyone needs to take the time to get informed before heading to the polls next month.
Rainy Howery, a student at Hirschi says, "I want to be able to see that if me as I grow older, if I'm going to be able to come back to my school if it still even going to be here or my children are going to be able to come to my alma mater."
KaSaundera Jones, a mother a WFISD student says, "It does not have to be a parent of a WFISD student. Anyone in the community, because it does affect all of us. Young, old, children, no children. I'm hoping that everybody will come out. Not just from this area."
Voters will have one more chance to hear from Wichita Falls ISD officials during their final town hall meeting on Tuesday starting at 6 p.m. inside Rider High School's auditorium.
