Kyle youth council looks at mobility improvements. - Page 1C Hays Free Press * November 16, 2016 Page 3B Auto, culinary, horticulture tech facilities focus of proposed bond BY MOSES LEOS III The desire to add and improve Career and Tech- nical Education (CTE) facilities across all Hays CISD high school cam- puses is driving a $13.1 million proposal that could be included in the May 2017 bond. Suzi Mitchell, Hays CISD CTE director, said the goal is to ensure dis- trict high school students, including those in a future third campus, have similar opportunities in all CTE fields. "Our objective was to make sure all three high schools have the same opportunities for our kids," Mitchell said. "It shouldn't be if you go (to one school), you get auto tech, but if you don't go there, you don't." Mitchell's proposal, which went before the Hays CISD Growth Impact Committee last month, calls for five new facilities and remodeling two existing ones. The bulk of the propos- al would fund roughly $6 million for auto technol- ogy facilities. Half of that would go to a new 6,000 square foot auto tech facility at Lehman High. The remainder would expand the current auto tech facility at Hays High. Mitchell said the dis- trict offers freshman level auto tech in a classroom at Lehman, but students who wish to receive certification are bussed to Hays, She said 16 Lehman students were transported to Hays in 2015 for auto tech. "We would have a ton more kids in the path- way if we have a shop (at Lehman), but we don't have a shop there," Mitchell said.
