Issues in the district

2014 bond proposal

In February 2014, the board approved a $125 million bond aimed at building a new high school ($64 million), building a Career and Technical Education Center potentially located at Wichita Falls High School ($24.2 million) and other renovations including those to Hirschi High School ($35 million). The new high school would hold 1,900 students from 10th through 12th grade. The bond would have meant a $122 to $134 increase in taxes for a $100,000 home. Ultimately, the bond did not pass, with 73 percent of voters opposed.[3]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[5]
