Lubbock ISD proposed bond package will go towards school security

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington keenly interested in safety enhancements at the school district level.

Specifically, reinforced, secured vestibules.

As part of Lubbock ISD's proposed bond package on the ballot in November, school entranceways would be made more secure. The district already locks the doors automatically at the beginning of each school day.

"With so many of the attacks that are happening on our school campuses nationwide, it behooves us to get ahead of it, to pre pro-active not re-active. So, we've got to do something to help, not only our community, but our parents feel more secure. Our teachers and our staff to feel more secure, our students to feel more secure," Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees, Bill Stubblefield, said.

$40 million is set aside to upgrade ever campus in the district and the majority of security renovations involve campus entrances and exits. Another big portion of the bond will go towards a new elementary school.

This school would take the place of the Guadalupe, Jackson and Wright campuses in northeast Lubbock.

Lubbock ISD voters will vote to approve or deny... November sixth.
