The Midway Independent School District Board of Trustees will meet Tuesday to review results from a survey given to the community to get their opinions on a future bond packet.

The Momentum Facility Study Committee, made up of a group of MISD parents, staff, locals, and community leaders, put together a $177 million recommendation.

The recommendation includes about $100 million for student capacity, about $59 million for program growth, and approximately $12 million for infrastructure and capital improvements. 

They also recommended adding an elementary school, which would increase the total number in Midway ISD from 10 to 11. They would also change River Valley Intermediate School into a middle school, and Woodgate Intermediate into an elementary school.

The facility study committee said these changes are needed due to the expected growth in the district within the next 10 years.

 For residents, this could mean an increase of approximately $7 a month in taxes.

The special board meeting to review the results from the community survey is at 5:30 p.m. The district said this recommendation has not been finalized yet. The board will have details for the bond packet by August 19.
