Lubbock ISD showcased expansions to its four high schools. The projects were made possible by a $98 million bond election passed by Lubbock voters back in 2004.
On Wednesday, the Lubbock ISD bond steering committee toured Lubbock High, Coronado and Monterey to see the progress being made. A new library and new classrooms are just part of the changes being made to help accommodate the 9th graders that will be moving to the high schools in the fall.
"Really, the reason we did this was to equip kids for the future, to be able to compete in activities, fine arts, athletics...this bond package really goes across the board," said Dan Pope, Chair of the Lubbock ISD bond steering committee.
The bond is also providing funding for the construction of two new elementary schools in Northwest and Southeast Lubbock. The district broke ground on those schools in April.
