KWTX's Marco Revuelta reported that the citizens of Killeen will be asked in May whether to approve a $426 million dollar bond to improve the school district, and build two additional campuses.

On Tuesday night, the Killeen Independent School District held its first meeting to the public to notify potential voters of the bond. Unfortunately, it wasn't that large of a turnout and administrators cancelled the meeting.

There were a few people that did show up, and were able to express their views and concerns with the administrators. Killeen ISD is hoping to gain money to help out with the overcrowding of the schools, add security additions to schools, and renovate some of the older campuses in the district.

If the bond is approved by Killeen voters, ground would be broken on a new elementary school and high school for the Killeen Independent School District. If you are interested in attending the next meeting, it will take place tonight at 6:00 p.m. at Killeen High School.
