Plans to put a bond issue before voters to build a new Ball High School could move closer to reality this month at two Galveston Independent School District meetings: the facilities committee meeting on Dec. 11, followed by a regular meeting of the board of trustees on Dec. 18 to consider recommendations from facilities.

I beg to differ with one sentence of the article, “Scott Elementary School is used only for special district or community events.” Scott is home to many local non-profits who serve the Galveston community, and have office space at a greatly reduced rate, courtesy of GISD. We will be eternally grateful to GISD for providing this space in an otherwise under utilized campus but if this proposal passes, the Galveston Diaper Bank, Smart Family Literacy, Comp-U-Dopt, Communities in Schools, among others, will have to find a new home.

Thank you, Kathy, for clarifying.

I understand Central Middle School is just about as old as Ball High School. Will it also be replaced?

All this talk of replacing old stuff makes me nervous...[unsure]
