MISD school board voted on August 19 to put a bond on the November ballot.

According to NewsWest 9, the $569 million bond will renovate schools in the district with the plan to build a new Midland and a new Lee high school and renovate the current Lee High building to make a third high school.

"With the news last night that we were going out for a bond on November 5 for renovation on schools and build two new high schools, we're excited about that and all the things that'll bring to the city and district of Midland," said John Kennedy, board trustee for District 4.

The district is requesting the bond to help accommodate the growing number of students in Midland.
