School Changes?

The Wichita Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees is holding work sessions to build the best bond proposals for the community.

Wednesday WFISD Superintendent Dr. John Frossard said the board is addressing all facilities needs and improving operating efficiency by aggressively moving toward "newer and fewer."

Dr. Frossard said, "Now were at the point where we need to incorporate all of the best ideas and synthesize it into something that is affordable and good for our students."

The trustees are reviewing three separate bond proposal recommendations presented by the Community Facilities Action Team, also known as CFAT. The bond proposals recommend everything from high school consolidation, establishment of a career center, upgrades to safety and even stadium upgrades. Though all trustees have differing opinions on the proposals one thing they all agree on is forming a plan that the community can rally around.

"I'm confident this community can rally around a younger generation and provide them the same opportunities we were provided with," said Dr.Frossard.

The trustees heard two recommendations from Dr.Frossard. Plan one would consist of building two new schools and a career tech center cost approximately $114.5 million. Plan 2 calls for three high schools and a career center at Hirschi with an approximate cost of $136 million dollars.

The board continued to discuss various plans for the proposals for just under two hours. They will meet again tomorrow inside the Education Center board room at noon.
