LISD school officials highlight facility needs

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock Independent School District has granted KCBD NewsChannel 11 access to see inside the schools to show where the money from the proposed LISD Bond Election will go if passed in November. The proposed bond is for $198 million.

Officials are taking us to Iles Elementary, Lowery Field, Bayless Elementary, Murfee Elementary, and J T Hutchison Middle School today to show what LISD says are conditions that need to be improved.

The Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees have called for a bond election to be held on November 2, 2010.  According to LISD, this decision was based upon the recommendations of a committee comprised of approximately 30 citizens representing all areas of the community.  The committee's recommendation was based upon a comprehensive assessment of every facility in the district and a detailed analysis of student demographic patterns.

Informational bond meetings are being held to explain to the public where the money will go. If you are interested in attending these meetings, you can attend the Tuesday, October 12th meeting at 6 p.m. in the Lubbock High School auditorium. The last one will be held Wednesday, October 13th at 6 p.m. in the Coronado High School auditorium.
