TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The Tyler Independent School District Board of Trustees voted Thursday to call bond election for May 7.

The $89 million package will include construction of a new building for Hubbard Middle School at $63 million, as well as a new early college high school for $26 million.

Andy Bergfeld, Tyler ISD Board Member said “the City of Tyler and the citizens and taxpayers have valued education with all of the bonds to this point and I think it’s helping and I think it’s showing up in the business climate that we have here in Tyler.”

The new Hubbard Middle School facility will have a 1,200 student capacity, updated safety and security features and improved traffic flow with designated parking areas. It will be located on the current site. The new building would replace the 55-year-old campus, comparable to the 2013 Boulter, Moore, and Three Lakes projects.

Wade Washmon, Tyler ISD School Board President said “these two schools, Hubbard and the Early College High School, it’s basically the last two pieces of the twenty-year puzzle, so we are thankful for the community for supporting the last one.”

Washmon said, “that there will be no increase to the taxpayers of Tyler ISD for this bond.”

The new early college high school facility is proposed to be located next to the Tyler ISD Career and Technology Center with a 650+ student capacity, cafeteria, updated safety and security features, and dedicated parking areas.
