Wylie ISD lays down plans for proposed $45,000,000 bond


Wylie ISD has been growing at a pace of 200 students annually.

"We currently are the 17th fastest growing school district in the state of Texas," commented Wylie Superintendent Joey Light.  

But because there are so many students coming in, the school must expand.

"It's a challenge but a great challenge, and our staff really embraces that," Mr. Light continued. 

This is where the Wylie ISD's new bond proposal comes in. The school district is already paying for a new elementary on the east side of Highway 83/84 but this new $45,000,000 bond will expand that elementary and provide funds to build an entirely new junior high campus with all the bells and whistles.

Many parents believe that this will help with what the school district is calling an over crowding problem.

"I think it's a good thing and I think it'll help," commented one parent. 

Nobody who spoke with KRBC seemed to loathe idea of paying additional taxes for education's sake.  

"Nobody wants to pay taxes, but I do understand, and in order for the kids to have a better classroom experience, I would be willing to pay those taxes," commented another parent.
