The Bryan School Board on Mon­day adopted a res­o­lu­tion to pro­ceed with the 7.45-mill, 28-year con­struc­tion bond issue, match­ing local funds to con­sol­i­date the district’s stu­dents at the cur­rent Bryan Mid­dle School site. Accord­ing to an arti­cle in The Bryan Times, the plan will include build­ing a new high school for grades 6–12 east of the field house and foot­ball sta­dium and ren­o­vat­ing the exist­ing mid­dle school for grades pre-kindergarten to 5.

To meet basic state stan­dards, the price tag is esti­mated at $53.95 mil­lion and the state will fund 35 per­cent of this total. Adding to the total cost would be $3.45 mil­lion in locally funded ini­tia­tives — parts of the project not eli­gi­ble for state co-funding. These addi­tions bring the total cost to $57.4 mil­lion — the state’s share at $18.88 mil­lion and the local share at $38.52 million.
