Vidor School Trustees call for $73.5 million bond issue election

By George Garza

On Tuesday night the School Board of Trustees of the Vidor Independent School District (VISD) voted unanimously to order that a school bond issue election be held on May 6, 2017 calling for the sale of $73.5 million in school construction bonds for the purpose of building a new high school. The Board took this action after hearing the recommendation of the Vidor ISD Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) during a three hour long meeting prior to making the motion. The CAC also recommended to the Board that the seventh and eighth grades only of the Vidor Junior High School, along with teachers staff and administrators be moved to the former High School campus once the new high school is open and occupied. Their proposal called for a completely new high school campus to be built at an unspecified new location within the District, without a new stadium, without new tennis courts and without new baseball and softball stadiums.
