Voters in Hallsville have approved a $55 million bond that the district says will be used for a number of projects at multiple campuses.

According to the district, the bond will fund improvements to New West Elementary School and the junior high school. 

Money from the bond will also go into building a new auditorium for the high school.

Among the district wide improvements are roof repairs, school buses and upgrades to the athletic field house.
