Unofficial results show the approval of Proposition A in the Georgetown ISD bond package, while Proposition B fell short.

About 68 percent of GISD residents voted in favor of Proposition A, which looked to address technology, safety and security, new infrastructure, and building upgrades, among other district needs.

Proposition B—a standalone ballot measure to build a district swim facility—lacked sufficient support with 48.71 percent in favor of the measure.

“By overwhelmingly supporting Proposition A, the community has shown tremendous trust in the district and a clear commitment to our students by investing in their future,” GISD Superintendent Fred Brent said in a news release.

Results are unofficial until canvassed.

Early voting results show approval of Proposition A in the Georgetown ISD bond proposal but Proposition B—a standalone ballot measure to build a district swim facility—lacks support, according to Williamson County Elections Department.

As of 7 p.m., results showed about 68 percent of votes in favor of Proposition A—of $150.5 million—would build two new elementary schools, repair aging building infrastructure, acquire land for future growth, allow for technology improvements and upgrade safety and security measures, among other upgrades.

Proposition B—of $15.5 million—would build a new district swim facility. In October the board voted to move forward with a joint GISD-YMCA swim facility, where each party would be responsible for building portions of the facility. The YMCA would operate the building, while district students would use the pool for swim practice and lessons.

In August, the GISD board of trustees called for a $166 million bond election with two propositions.

Results are unofficial until canvassed.
