In November 2012, NISD voters approved a $255 million capital bond referendum providing funds for 4,000 new student seats, new school construction, renovations and additions to existing schools, career academies and pathways, a technology replacement cycle, safety and security equipment updates and building component replacements.
In 2013, additions were completed at Lakeview Elementary School and Clara Love Elementary. In 2014, additions will be made to O.A. Peterson Elementary School and Samuel Beck Elementary. Construction on V.R. Eaton High School has begun and is scheduled for completion in 2015.
