GLADEWATER (KYTX) - White Oak school trustees have called a 25 million dollar bond election for a new high school, athletic field house and other improvements.
It's the third Longview-area school district to ask voters for debt-issued bond this May.
Bobbie Price lives across the street from Weldon Intermediate School in Gladewater and says she's happy that Gladewater ISD will renovate and expand the 81-year-old campus.
"I look at it every day," Price says, "and I would hate to see it .. I would like for it to stay there."
That's the plan proposed by Gladewater school trustees.
In a $35 million bond proposal, trustees want to renovate and expand Weldon intermediate to accommodate second- and third-graders from Broadway Elementary School, which would close if the bond passes.
Gladewater I. S.D. would also build a new middle school campus. It's one of at least three bond elections called for May 10.
