Voters approved the $663.1 million bond election earlier today. Proceeds of the bond issue will be used to build new facilities, upgrade and renovate existing facilities, address safety and security districtwide, upgrade technology infrastructure and equipment, provide fi¬ne arts equipment, and address transportation.
“We are pleased that the voters supported this bond program, which will allow the district to implement a long-range facilities master plan designed to honor tradition while investing in the future,” Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. “The items included will allow us to provide increased access and opportunities for our students in order to meet our mission to empower and engage all students to be contributing, responsible citizens reaching their maximum potential through relevant, innovative and rigorous learning experiences.”
“On behalf of the Board, I want to thank the community for their input throughout the process and for the support of the district,” Board President Bowie Hogg said. “We look forward to starting the work to complete the items in this bond package over the next five years.”
A summary of projects is available on the bond information page of the AISD website, www.aisd.net/bond.
