New school years often mean changes, and the one that starts here Monday is no different.
And while most of the changes are somewhat subtle and not always noticeable to the general public, the biggest change at Big Spring Independent School District will be obvious to everyone.
Construction on four new elementary campuses, part of a $60 million renovation of the school district's infrastructure, will be in full swing during the coming school year and officials are promising to do everything they can to keep disruptions and inconveniences to a minimum.
Transportation and Maintenance Supervisor Wayland Pierce, who will help oversee the myriad of construction projects, said officials have met several times this summer to plan out the work schedule with an eye toward minimizing inconvenience to students, teachers and parents alike.
