Members of the Corpus Christi ISD School Board received an update on the new Mary Carroll High School Project Monday night.
The voter approved $175 million project which is set to be located along Saratoga and Kostoryz is part of a larger $210 million bond measure which was approved by voters in November 2018.
In Monday night’s update from project managers, Board members were advised that negotiations for construction bids are set to begin in October.
Officials said that as of now, the new campus will be ready for the 2022 school year.
Despite the positive update, some still feel like they have been down this road before. In 2010, voters passed a bond that was supposed to turn Carroll’s current campus on Weber Road into a middle school, and then build a new
Carroll High School on Cimarron. However, that plan was scrapped when board members voted to change that in favor of a new campus that eventually became Veterans Memorial High School off Cimarron and Lipes.
