Rebuild vs. renovate: BSISD officials debate Moss future

January 14, 2011

Big Spring school officials want very much to add a fourth new elementary campus to their upcoming construction list.

Officials discussed the possibility of replacing Moss Elementary with a new campus during Thursday's meeting of the Big Spring Independent School District board of trustees.

When voters approved a $60 million bond proposal in May 2010, plans called for three new elementaries to replace existing campuses at Washington, Marcy and Goliad.

Trustees OK sale of last block of construction bonds

January 14, 2011

Big Spring Independent School District trustees authorized the sale of the final block of voter-approved construction bonds during their regular meeting Thursday evening.

Voters approved the issuance of $60 million in bonds in May, and almost $53 million of those were sold in September.

However, officials held $6.7 million in bonds in abeyance, hoping to qualify for financing under the Qualified School Construction Bond program, a federally-backed system which features ultra-low interest rates.
