Construction Projects[edit]

In May 2007, voters approved a $159 million bond package that called for the construction of new schools as well as renovation of existing campuses.[2] Five new campuses - two elementary, one middle, and two high schools - were constructed as a part of this bond measure. The elementary school sites are located at 4208 Lone Tree Road and 2654 Mallette Drive. These schools opened at the start of the 2009-2010 school year. The new middle school and two high schools opened the following year.[3] The Stroman Campus of Memorial High School became the Victoria Area Advanced Learning Center, offering middle and high school students higher level courses in a centralized location. The Memorial High School Senior Campus will became the district's events center. Memorial Stadium is located on this site as well as a quality track, tennis courts, dressing rooms for multiple sports, and an agricultural farm with classroom facilities. A new auditorium and natatorium, included in the overall bond package, were also constructed on the site.[4]
