Three Rivers ISD residents, along with Bee County residents living in the Three Rivers ISD, approved an $11,185,000 school bond on Tuesday (Nov. 2) during the regular election.

Voting affirmative were: 369, or 69.89 percent; and voting negative: 159, or 30.11 percent.

“I am very happy that the community has given us permission to begin constructing a new school facility for our students,” said Three Rivers ISD Superintendent Kenneth Rohrbach.

“We are excited to begin the design phase of the process and look forward to a construction start date in late June or early July,” Rohrbach added.

Revenue from the sale of the bonds will construct an approximately 56,000-square foot facility which will house 7th-grade through 12th-grade classrooms, family and consumer science labs, library, science labs, offices, band hall, print shop and central administration offices.

“To have our entire 7th-grade through 12th-grade campus under one roof will be wonderful and the building will be built to accommodate modern forms of instructional delivery and support current technology. I am anxious to begin meeting with students, teachers and parents to design this new school,” Rohrbach said.

The votes are not official until canvassed. Three Rivers ISD will canvass the bond election votes at a public meeting today (Nov. 10) at noon in the school administration building.
