Frenship ISD Superintendent will go before Lubbock City Council to discuss growth

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The superintendent of one of the fastest growing school districts in the state is preparing to go before the Lubbock City Council to discuss their growth.

Superintendent Dr. David Vroonland says the school district is growing at a consistent rate of 4% to 6% each year. In ten years, he expects the district to almost double.

He says Frenship taxpayers pay for most of this growth, and he would like to see more support from the state.

While 60 percent of FISD is Lubbock students, Vroonland feels it's important to keep the Lubbock City Council up to date.

That's why he hopes going before the council on Thursday will push awareness, and urge the state to help out fast growing districts.

He has already talked to the Wolfforth City Council.

"We feel the need to report to both of those communities and keep the awareness level high. They are involved with the construction of roads and sewer systems and water and so they need to know what's going on with our school district especially as a growth district," said Vroonland.

Currently there are six elementary schools, two junior high schools, with an additional one that will open next year, and one high school.

"We are going through a strategic planning process right now to look at our high school configuration in the future, because our high school was really built to handle about 2400 students and by 2019 we'll be sitting closer to 3200 students," said Vroonland.

There are another two elementary schools in works right now. One will open in 2013, and the other in 2015.
