LISD looks to bond election to improve several of its campuses

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - LISD will be having a bond election regarding renovations done to several of its campuses.

Voters have approved a bond election for over 150 million dollars to aid in the reconstruction of Cigarroa Middle School, along with Cigarroa High School and several other elementary schools.

Any money left over will help improve the administration building.
Cigarroa High School has not seen any remodeling or improvements since it was built back 1983.

Students and staff say they have frequently experienced leaking roofs and shifting floors.

Principal Jose Cerda says explains that the layout of the school makes it difficult to build additional expansions.

Cerda says, "We've been in existence for 35 years serving our students in this community and I think it's about time that we have an opportunity to provide our students not only with the best academic education but with some of the best facilities.”

The reconstruction of Cigarroa Middle School will give the school its own gymnasium, cafeteria and library, all of which they currently have to share with Cigarroa High School.

Early voting for the proposition will begin April 23rd and Election Day will be on May 5th.
