From The Houston Chronicle: The Lamar (Texas) Consolidated Independent School District will hold a $249.2 million bond election in November. The money would pay for five new campuses, a natatorium and a bus barn, as well as technology upgrades and building renovations. Projects include a $82 million fifth high school, a $41 million junior high and a $15 million sixth-grade campus. In addition, the district also would build two elementary schools, the district's second natatorium and an agriculture barn. Nearly $24 million would go to renovate and improve more than two dozen existing buildings, including 22 campuses, the current agriculture barn and various career and technology education facilities.
