Central Heights bond election on Saturday

CENTRAL HEIGHTS, TX (KTRE) - Central Heights residents will vote on a 13.7 million dollar school bond election on Saturday. Its passage will bring the growing district a new high school and elementary school renovations.   The proposed projects come in two phases, the first is a new high school to serve 450 students. It will have new science facilities and labs. In addition, a new gym, classrooms, and cafeteria will be built. Also included are changes to the elementary so children can be moved out of portable buildings.  "The board has passed a resolution to where if this bond passes it will be contingent on state funding program that's been set up and the state will actually kick in 60% of the building costs,"  said Jeremy Glenn, superintendent.   If passed the bond will raise taxes by 214 dollars on a $100,000 home.
