A May 10th Bond Election has been set by Trustees of the Northside Independent School District.
About 45% of the $648-million plan would go toward building new schools said Superintendant Brian Woods, adding the bulk of the rest of the cash would go toward upgrading existing campuses.
"We have buildings that are 60 years and those buildings require renovation. It's been a goal of the staff and of our board for years to not have zip code determine the quality of the facility a student goes to school in" Woods said.
There would be cash for other items as well--some of it going toward replacing some of the district's aging school buses, and more.
"That includes technology for classrooms and teachers" Woods said.
