An official bond proposal is one step closer as Wichita Falls school board members discuss the location of a possible career and technology education center.
During a work session for school board members, talk of a two comprehensive high school plan with a career and technology center, otherwise known as a CTE continued.
The board hopes one large high school will be built at Memorial Stadium, with a separate 9th grade center, which would use McNiel Junior High's facility.
Hirschi would be the 2nd and smaller high school campus and would receive improvements.
Board members plan to put the CTE center at Wichita Falls High School's current location, because it's in a central spot.
“To maintain a community presence, in terms of a school in that community. It's also district owned property. There is some space available where you can possibly start construction relatively quickly. It wouldn't involve imminent domain and property acquisition and that kind of thing,” said Dr. John Frossard, WFISD superintendent.
Wichita Falls school board members meet Wednesday to discuss the cost amount for the bond, how and if a choice program would be implemented and the specific size of the schools.
