W.F.I.S.D Board Meeting

Wichita Falls Independent School District Board Members met today in a special session. Many agenda items were discussed but won’t take action until Monday, June 16.

One of those items was an increase in lunch prices. The district wants to increase elementary school lunches by five cents, making the price of lunches $2.30. Then adult lunches would increase by ten cents, and those meals would cost $3.10.

Most of the conversation in the meeting was about the future of W.F.I.S.D. Although the 125 million dollar school bond failed, they want to find another way to make the improvements they need.

Many bond members agreed upon a three high school model, after the bond failed miserably, they think this is also what the community wants. The district needs renovations in many schools, according to officials.  

Board members are hoping to do so no bond money, or with little bond money. More planning will go into those details.

Another topic discussed was attendance zones. Students in certain zones have a designated school to attend, but they may have a somewhat of a choice depending on school capacity.  

One item on the agenda was approved for action today. That item was about  related to chair lift installation at Hirschi High School.
 
Board members will take action on the rest of the agenda items Monday. However, discussion on the future of W.F.I.S.D will continue.
