This month, the Lubbock-Cooper ISD Board of Trustees approved the proposal for a $208.2 million bond. Residents inside the Lubbock-Cooper boundary will be voting on the proposal for the school district on May 7.

Keith Bryant the Superintendent for Lubbock-Cooper said the money is needed for the expanding student count and to provide much needed facilities.

“Lubbock-Cooper ISD is the third fastest-growing school district in the state of Texas,” said Superintendent Bryant. “This is a great problem to have – families want to move into our district, they want their children to receive a Lubbock-Cooper education because they believe in our vision and they trust us to exceed expectations. This means, however, that we are charged with analyzing our current facilities, adding and revamping where necessary, and ensuring that we are able to accommodate this unprecedented growth well into the future.”

The proposal includes district-wide renovations such as traffic improvements on multiple campuses, renovations at South Elementary and Lubbock-Cooper Middle School, and technology improvements on each campus.
