District Needs
Following months of review, discussion and consideration, the committee unanimously agreed on this proposal and presented their recommendations [FACILITIES PRESENTATION] to the BISD Board of Trustees on June 24, 2021.

Based on the recommendations from the Capital Improvement Committee, the BISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call for a $112.4 million bond election that will go before voters on November 2, 2021. The bond proposal is made up of two propositions in order to comply with a new law that requires certain projects to be listed separately on the ballot. 

If approved by voters, this bond proposal will increase the district tax rate by $0.22.
