On June 26, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees called for a $1,050,984,000 bond election to be held Nov. 7. The bond proposition includes:
- 16 modernized or new schools to meet 21st-century learning standards
- districtwide improvements in transportation and technology
- addressing critical facility needs
Priorities in developing the bond proposition include addressing the facilities with the worst conditions first, addressing overcrowding at some schools, and keeping student safe, warm and dry. To download the final summary of projects included in the bond package, click here.
While addressing critical facility needs, it is equally important to use this opportunity to modernize facilities and reinvent the urban education experience for AISD.
The bond will not raise AISD’s current tax rate.
