Understanding The Bond: WFISD Town Hall Meeting

Posted: Updated:
On Monday, the Wichita Falls Independent School District held its first of three town hall meetings at Wichita Falls High School auditorium.

The event was organized to help citizens better understand the $125 million dollar bond proposal that will go to vote in May. 

WFISD Superintendent Dr. John Frossard presented a short presentation and then allowed people to ask questions. 

A lot of parents and residents voiced their concerns about a variety of issues in regards to the bond and how they would affect students in the district.

"Why do you need a 9th grade center? When you're going to build a new school out by the stadium. Why not equal out the numbers and say put some money into Hirschi ans say now we don't need that 9th grade center.," said one concerned parent. 

"What degree programs will that focus on? Will there be some type of requirement like a minimum GPA to get into the program?," said one Wichita Falls resident. 

Both Dr. Frossard and WFISD board president Kevin Goldstein took turns answering questions.

The WFISD will also be holding two more town hall meetings: 

  • Monday, April 14 -- Hirschi auditiorium
  • Tuesday, April 15 -- Rider auditorium
Both town hall meetings will begin at 6 p.m.
