State To Pay Lockney Insurance Deductible

Continuing coverage of the fire at Lockney High School, NewsChannel 11 has learned the state will pay the district's deductible, and school leaders tell us students could be back in the junior high by the end of the month.

We spoke with State Representative Joe Heflin (D - Crosbyton) Thursday afternoon. He tells NewsChannel 11 he started making calls to help as soon as he learned the school was on fire.  "I was just shocked, just totally shocked. I had gotten home about 10:30 that evening, flipped on the television here in Austin, and it just said Lockney High School burns," Heflin said. 

Heflin says he immediately called the superintendent and set up a meeting with the Texas Education Agency. They've organized portable buildings that should arrive within three weeks. They've also made sure the school has all the text books they need, and Heflin says they're doing more.  "The state has a fund that we're going to pick up their insurance deductible. We're just trying to get them back to normal as soon as possible, of course normal is a while away," Heflin said. 

The school's deductible is around $50,000. School leaders also tell us that clean-up is going great in the junior high building. They could be back to class in the building by January 26th. You can count on NewsChannel 11 to keep you updated.
