AISD Administration Recommends $989.3 Million Bond Proposal to Board of Trustees

Austin ISD administration will recommend a $989.3 million bond proposal at the June 12 special meeting and board workshop. The bond proposal would include the modernization or new construction of 14 schools with no tax rate increase.
 
The board will discuss the administration recommendation and is anticipated to vote at its June 19 meeting to call the election. Election Day will be slated for Nov. 7 if the Board decides to put the bond package up to voters this fall.
 
A second prioritized group of projects totaling $407.2 million is also available for board discussion, as the board will determine the final bond package to go before voters.
 
The administration recommendation is presented as a result of the district's Facility and Bond Planning Advisory Committee findings, which are outlined in the Facility Master Plan. The FMP is the primary supporting document to support the district's vision to Reinvent the Urban School Experience. The development of the FMP included five series of outreach and community engagement meetings across AISD.
