The Corpus Christi Independent School District is pursuing a proposed $208 million bond package to make major upgrades to local schools.

Among the proposed upgrades is $175 million to build a new Mary Carroll High School.

CCISD Superintendent Roland Hernandez says the new Carroll High School is necessary to avoid school over-crowding.

The current campus was built in 1957.

Much of the remaining dollars included in the bond proposal is dedicated to security and technology upgrades brought by the governor.

The proposed bond will also add an additional gym to Kaffie and Grant middle schools. The district also wants to upgrade classroom technology and the windows to Ray High School.
