The article briefly reports on bond committee plan of school districts in Texas. With eyes set on a $129 million bond referendum, the board of trustees for the Lake Travis Independent School District last week approved a plan to form a bond committee to oversee the election and finalize a list of projects. A study conducted by district officials indicates that in order to meet growth demand through 2010, the district will have to expand its current high school arid build an additional middle school and two elementary schools to house the higher enrollment. The remainder of the bond package's total cost would be spent on land acquisition, expansion of facilities for fine arts programs, and technology improvements.
