Growing at a rate of 4.7% over the past three years and 2% for the last 10, the Norris school district wants to expand their classrooms.
They are asking for $8.6 million in bond money to build a new middle school that would be able to house 525 students in grades six through eight.
The current building houses grades 6 through 12 and superintendent Roy Baker points to crowded hallways, problematic lockers, and shared classrooms as reasons to support the bond issue.
However, Baker says he hasn't heard much feedback from community members on the bond issue so he doesn’t know which way they are leaning.
The district hopes for a high voter turnout. The primary election takes place on Tuesday, May 11.
