Travis County voters overwhelmingly approved the district's $1.05 billion bond proposal, which includes 16 new or modernized campuses and 21st-century learning spaces for students throughout the district.
According to unofficial results from the Travis County Clerk's office, 72.06 percent of voters cast their ballots in favor of the proposition.
“We’re grateful to the voters for placing their trust in Austin ISD, and we’re excited to get started creating 21st-century learning spaces for all our students," said Superintendent Paul Cruz. "All means all. Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and work together as a community to make these critical investments a reality for the benefit of the nearly 82,000 students at 130 schools throughout the city.”
Districtwide, all students will benefit from technology upgrades and new buses, as well as school-specific projects, such as a new facility for the Rosedale School, which offers tailored educational opportunities to our most medically fragile students.
In early voting, which was Oct. 23–Nov. 3, 68.1 percent of residents supported the bond. More than 15 percent of registered voters voted in the election. Results are unoffical until certified.
