Wharton ISD propose major renovations in new $59 million bond package

The Wharton County School District board of trustees has proposed a new fifty nine million dollar bond package which will be voted on during the November general election.

The Bond package, which was proposed on August 14th, will include security improvements at all campuses, a new AG Projects Center, a newly re-built Tiger Stadium and major renovations to Wharton Junior High and High School.

Wharton High School, in particular, will see nearly half the school torn down and rebuilt to meet modern safety standards.

“What we see is, if we take care of these fifty nine million dollars worth of improvements, the Wharton Independent School District will have the facilities that we need and that our students deserve for the next twenty five years.”

If approved, Wharton County taxpayers will see an increase, on average, of about eighteen dollars per month in taxes. The bond election takes place on November 6th.
