The Killeen Independent School District released a rendering Tuesday of the district’s new high school, which will open in 2022 after voters approved a $426 million bond issue for construction and renovations.

The school, which will be constructed on Chaparral Road, will accommodate as many as 2,500 students and may include a STEM focused program.

Voters approved two propositions in May including a $235 million bond issue to pay for the new high school, a new elementary school and upgrades throughout the district to make schools safer and to improve accessibility for the disabled.

The second proposition called for a $191 million bond issue to pay for new schools and renovations at 11 existing campuses all of which are more than 50 years old.
