Frenship ISD Voters Will Consider $85 Million Bond in 2014

Frenship ISD

Monday night, the Frenship ISD Board of Trustees unanimously voted to place an $85.2 million bond on the ballot in May 2014.

According to Frenship ISD officials, the proposed bond will help the district handle future growth at both the high school and elementary school levels.  The largest project on the bond is $64.5 million to be allocated for the building of the district’s eighth elementary school and a Ninth Grade Center.

The proposed Ninth Grade Center would be built adjacent to the existing Frenship High School. This would allow for shared facilities for athletics, fine arts and other departments.

FISD demographic studies show that the capacity of the current Frenship High School campus is 2,550. Enrollment for the 2013-14 school year at Frenship High School is 2,120, which is below current capacity.  However, current enrollment numbers in the fifth through eighth grade classes are 2,596, a total that will surpass the capacity of Frenship High School. FISD officials state those enrollment numbers do not factor in potential growth for the district. The Ninth Grade Center would be constructed with a student capacity of 1,000.

Other expenses for the proposed bond: $7.2 million for technology upgrades, $6.5 million for maintenance improvements and $4.8 million for extracurricular advances.
