Permian High School Breaks Ground on Expansion

ODESSA, TX (Local Big 2) -- Permian High School broke ground Monday on its portion of a school district-wide expansion project.

PHS is moving its tennis courts and expanding its athletic and fine arts facilities.

Ector County ISD administrators say this is the first step of expanding the high school to accommodate 9th graders.

Currently, PHS and OHS are just 10th through 12th grade high school campuses.

But with the passage of the 2012 nearly $130 million bond election, the campuses are expanding to accommodate 9 through 12th graders.

"It's an exciting time for Ector County ISD," Tom Crowe, the Superintendent of ECISD said. "There's more growth than has happened in a number of years -- a lot of changes happening at the same time."

Administrators say the full expansion should be complete by the 2015-2016 school year. As that's when the district will shifts its high schools to 9th through 12th grade campuses.
