LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - KLTV’s Jamey Boyum talks with Longview ISD Superintendent Dr. James Wilcox about a special meeting held Monday.

The special session approved purchasing property for future use.

“It will be used for additional use of the district in the future. We don’t have a plan for it right now, it’ll be for future use of the district,” said Wilcox.

The property in question is north of Longview High School.

The board of trustees also recently attended a meeting in San Antonio regarding school safety. Wilcox shared what he learned about “hardening” the school with deterrents to avoid being a soft target.
