The Argyle school board this week approved a $45 million bond election to be held on May 10.
The board voted 4-0 at their Feb. 24 meeting to put the measure on the ballot.
The funds would allow construction of new buildings, renovation of existing facilities, land acquisition, and updating of athletic facilities, according to Argyle Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright.
“The middle school/high school has 12 portable classrooms now,” said Wright. “The growth from Canyon Falls and Harvest with other developments push the current facilities to capacity.”
It has been projected that the district’s enrollment could jump from just under 2,000 students to more than 3,000 students within the next five years.
