Beginning next spring, Fredericksburg High School will undergo a remodeling and refurbishing, courtesy of a school bond approved overwhelmingly by local voters.
In May, residents voted 763-106 to approve a $16.5 million Fredericksburg Independent School District bond.
Among the bond funds will be renovations at the high school, along with miscellaneous other upgrades.
Pending approval of bids, construction at FHS for the upgrades and additions will begin spring 2016.
The high school renovations will cost an estimated $7.4 million. FISD transportation upgrades will cost $951,000, and miscellaneous other upgrades will cost around $1.93 million.
In the 1960s, when FHS first opened, the front of the school faced northwest, toward Texas 16. The administration office was housed in the current library office.
