S&S CISD voters asked to approve new middle school

By  | 

SADLER, Tex. (KXII) -- Voters are being asked to approve a $20.5 million bond to build a new middle school.

The election is set for Nov. 7.

The current S&S Middle School has been in use since 1930. It currently houses grades 6-8.

After 80 years, S&S CISD Superintendent Roger Reed said it is time for a new facility. "That is all we ask for the community to come out, take a look at the facility, and go and vote depending on how you feel about the particular election," Reed said.

The building would have 20 core classrooms, and a storm shelter. It would be build on land the district currently owns.

If the bond passes, property taxes would increase about $240 per year on a $75,000 home.
