CCISD taking steps to build new Carroll High School

Posted: Updated:

Corpus Christi Independent School District is taking steps to build a new Carroll High School.

Land for the new campus hasn't been selected, but yesterday the school board approved a resolution that would reimburse the district for the purchase of that land.

The money for the land purchase would come through a future bond election. 

CCISD Superintendent Dr. Roland Hernandez says the move is in keeping with the district's proactive approach to maintain up to date campuses.

"Whether it's replacing schools, adding on to schools, or even adding new wings of renovations of some sort, this is our next step,” said Hernandez. “We're trying to get out in front of it and not have the land swiped out from under us with all the shopping plazas and things that are coming about."

Dr. Hernandez says the district hopes to open the new Carroll High School in the next 2 to 4 years.
