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.
