The article reports on financial matters of school management in Texas. Amarillo-area River Road Independent School District has set February 5, 2005 as the date for a $16 million bond election. Most of the money would fund a new $12.4 million high school to be built adjacent to the current school. The existing high school would be demolished, except the administration offices and a large gymnasium. The increase would mean $200 more per year in property taxes for an $80,000 home.
