    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

TYLER (KYTX) - Statement from Mr. Gary Mooring, Tyler ISD Superintendent

On behalf of the Tyler Independent School District and the Board of Trustees, I want to thank the community for supporting the $160.5 million bond election. Because of you, thousands of children in the District will soon receive their education in safe schools that are designed to support 21st century learning.  

Over the next two years, Tyler ISD will build a state-of-the-art Career and Technical Education (CTE) Center that will serve students from both John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools; a new middle school in the southwest quadrant of Tyler; a new middle school at the current Boulter Middle School site; a new middle school at the current Moore MST Magnet School site; and remodel and additions to Rice and Dixie elementary schools. These facilities are all scheduled to be complete by August 2015. 

With input from the community, the Tyler ISD Board of Trustees carefully designed a bond package that would fulfill a commitment to finish renovations at our elementary campuses and begin addressing our secondary campuses. The six projects included in the bond will help us move forward with the District's Long Range Plan. 

By the year 2020 we expect to have an additional 2,500 students, bringing our total student population to more than 20,000. At this point, the areas of the Long Range Plan that have not been addressed are John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools, as well as transitioning to a 5th-6th intermediate school and 7th-8th middle school configuration.    

As we move forward with the Long Range Plan the District will maintain its commitment to supporting academic progress and creating financial efficiencies. We look forward to working with members of the community for ongoing involvement in future District improvement projects. We are so thankful for your support of our schools, and we will continue to focus on providing the highest quality education for each of our students.
