Connally hopes for $ 39 million bond to build new elementary school | Education
Although no incidents were reported, Holt said the district did not want to wait to resolve what is clearly a problem.
“I don’t want to wait for that to happen and then have a reaction. I’d like to be proactive before I get there, ”said Holt.
If the link doesn’t go through, the neighborhood’s only choice for now would be to stay in the current building.
“It would be the same building. Our kids would always miss out on the same things, ”said Holt.
The district obtained a quote from an engineer to resolve the maintenance and electrical issues at the current location. It would cost almost $ 18 million, he said.
The district is aware of the rumblings in opposition to the link, but it hopes affected community members take the time to tour the facilities before heading to the polls, Holt said.
Guided tours are available on Wednesday evenings and the district hosts virtual meetings on Monday evenings. More information, including some videos, is also available at connally.org/page/bond-2021.
“I would just encourage them to come and see the building and make a decision for themselves,” Holt said. “They have the right to go and vote but I encourage them to come and see him.”
Early voting begins Monday in the November 2 general election in five locations. Voting centers are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. from October 18 to 22, with the same hours from October 25 to 27.
