CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Independent School District will be seeing a multi-million dollar improvement, after residents voted to approve a bond proposal on Tuesday's general election.

Following Tuesday's election, 27,311 (51.41 percent) voted for the measure, while 25,811 (48.59 percent) voted against.

The district took to social media on Tuesday night to thank voters for approving the bond.

""We love where we live, work and learn!" the district said on social medias. "Voters have approved Bond 2022, and we look forward to bringing two new middle schools, new playgrounds and additional projects to our area."
