Soon, land on the Bonham campus will be dedicated to a new eight classroom wing.
Kathy Horner, principal of Bonham, said it will be a great addition.
"We need this because we have run out of space. We are busting at the seams right now. We have our special education program that is also being housed in a very small room that is sharing with another program. So they will allow us to have enough room to accommodate our growing needs," Horner said.
On Monday, the school board voted on how to spend money that was left over from a 2004 bond.
The original bond funded the construction of Martinez Elementary, along with other projects in the district.
In the end. the board decided to use $1.5 million to construct the new wing to replace portable buildings.
Horner said the addition more efficient and safer.
"We have three special needs classes. Several students are in wheel chairs, so it definitely gives them ample room for their special needs that that class requires," Horner said.
Construction could be complete as early as next school year.
