Coppell school district officials are moving forward with plans for more 70 projects for the district after voters approved a $79.5 million bond package at the May 11 election.
Of 2,587 votes, residents cast 1,638 ballots, or 63 percent, in favor of the bond, according to results. About 37 percent, or 949 people voted against the multi-million dollar bond package. The bond package is a four-year spending plan with 74 projects for all Coppell Independent School District campuses.
Within the package is a proposal for $27 million in renovations to Coppell High School, such as expanding the school’s gym and the athletic field house.
