La Feria schools promote $14 million bond package

LA FERIA — A resident learning how to write grants said the school board needs to think outside the box when it comes to looking for money to help the district.

Lifetime resident Armando Lomas, 34, said “as far as for seeking a $14 million bond to renovate schools, the district should look into federal and state grants for help.”

At the Jan. 11 school board meeting, the La Feria school board voted unanimously to call a $14 million bond election asking voters to consider a proposition.

If approved, district homeowners would be responsible for approximately $4.2 million of the bonds and approximately $9.8 million would be funded by the state.
