It's no secret that the College Station school district is getting bigger. Now the school board is ready to ask residents to help shoulder those growing pains.
At its meeting Tuesday night, the board voted to proceed with a bond election in May.
Amenities include a new high school which would be ready for students by the fall of 20-12. The district also wants to add an eighth elementary school plus a new transportation facility.
The total package is $144 million.
If approved by voters, the new high school would initially accommodate about 1,800 students, with plans to increase to 2,500 and a 5A classification like A&M Consolidated High School.
The new elementary school would eventually educate some 600 students.
The last bond election for CSISD was May of 2007. Since then, annual enrollment has continued to grow at approximately five percent.
