CORPUS CHRISTI -- The new Mary Carroll High School opening has been pushed back to August 2015, a year later than planned as the district deals with rising construction costs.
The high school, which has been under construction at Cimarron and Lipes since June, will replace the existing high school of the same name on Weber Road. School officials said delaying the opening will allow for minor design changes that will make the project more cost-effective.
School board members are scheduled to meet in June to discuss whether to keep the existing high school open when the new one is completed. Board members originally planned to re-purpose the existing high school into a middle school, but rising enrollment anticipated over the next decade may force them to abandon that plan.
