Austin ISD 2017 Bond
The Austin Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a November 7, 2017 bond election for $1,050,984,000, which would bring 21st century learning spaces to students without increasing our tax rate.
This bond is designed to modernize or construct 16 new campus facilities, some of which will be replacement schools. It is also planned to update campuses with capital improvement projects. Some key projects included in the bond proposition are:
- Districtwide improvements to technology for teachers and students and transportation,
- Improvements to address overcrowding and critical needs, and
- Reinvention programs for 21st century learning.
The AISD Board of Trustees approved a bond proposition informed by the Facility Master Plan, which serves as a high-level guideline for all district facilities over the next 25 years. This bond package is the culmination of almost two years of intensive work.
While addressing critical facility needs, it is equally important to use this opportunity to modernize facilities and reinvent the urban education experience for AISD.
Early voting is Oct. 23–Nov. 3 and Election Day is Nov. 7.
