Lubbock ISD Voters to Decide Upon $130 Million Bond in November
Monday morning, in a special meeting of the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees, the board voted to place a bond election on the November ballot. The proposed $130 million bond would cover funding for a number of projects across the district.
The largest project that would be covered by the bond is $40 million for security upgrades to existing campuses. The measures include adding: secure vestibule entries to schools, front-door intercom & buzz-in system, cameras, lighting and fencing.
The next largest portion of the bond would be $27.5 million for repairs and replacement to roofing and HVAC systems for various campuses across Lubbock ISD. Specific campuses were not listed on a handout provided by Lubbock ISD.
Then, $25 million would be set aside for the building a new elementary school in north Lubbock. The new school would replace three existing low-population campuses and have a capacity of 700 students.
Additional projects for the proposed bond are: $12 million for the expansion of the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders campus (new auditorium & classrooms), $10.5 million for Phase 1 of a new Agri-STEM complex, $10 million to add classrooms to various campuses to replace portable buildings, and $4.5 million to renovate the Monterey High School Auditorium.
