Frenship Independent School District is now searching for architects and contractors after a $46.8 million bond issue overwhelmingly passed this weekend.
While 1,001 voters supported the bond, only 317 voters opposed it. The passage of the bond means Frenship will build a new middle school, a new elementary school, and new classrooms will also be added to take the place of those trailers that are being used as temporary classrooms.
