Frenship ISD Superintendent Describes Bond Election Details [Audio]

Frenship ISD

Wednesday on Lubbock’s First News, David Vroonland, Superintendent of Frenship ISD, gave some details on the $85.2 million proposed bond election that will increase size, number, and quality of the school district’s buildings to pace increased student enrollment.

The bond includes a proposal for a Ninth Grade Center. This, Vroonland explained, is in response to the continued growth in the number of students enrolled. He noted there are currently about 2,600 5th-8th grade students; he predicted this number will exceed the number of high school students in the next few years.

In addition to the Ninth Grade Center, the bond includes expansions on current elementary school buildings, and additions to increase security in all buildings. Vroonland said, “The truth is the elementary school is our most pressing need.” He observed that schools will be at seating capacity by 2016, leading to the need to expand to “reduce the amount of pressure on those schools.” The plan is to build bigger buildings now to reduce the costs of expansion in the future. The bond includes adding keyless entry systems at all buildings and cameras at all exits to make them more secure.
