The approved bond will cost $397.7 million and includes four separate propositions.
Proposition A includes funding to build two new elementary schools and one new middle school, purchase land and buses, and finance other capital projects. Proposition B would provide funding for a multipurpose event center, and Proposition C would provide funding for a pavilion on the grounds of the event center, as well as sports facilities at several campuses. Proposition D includes funding for the acquisition of updated teacher and student instructional technology.
The decision comes after months of planning and discussion by both the board and the bond committee. In January, the board appointed Escamilla & Poneck LLP to serve as legal bond counsel.
Citizens will have the opportunity to vote on each proposition during the May 2 election.
