The Comal ISD board of trustees voted 6-1 to move forward with a bond election at their bond workshop meeting Feb. 15.

Comal ISD School Board President Jason York emphasized his appreciation of the work of the board, faculty, staff and Comal Forward Committee.

“We are definitely trying to put the best decisions that we can forward for every community. We are an ever-growing district, and I do appreciate the passion and really the board coming together and approving this bond for 2023,” York told Community Impact.

The last time voters approved a bond was in 2021, where $411.3 million went toward building two new elementary schools, a new middle school, land acquisition and infrastructure projects across the district.

This year, voters will have the option to consider and vote for three propositions, propositions A, B and C. The May bond, which is a total of about $634.66 million, is not expected to raise taxes.

Proposition A, which costs about $560.56 million, focuses on safety and security, facility expansion and growth in the district.

Proposition B costs about $46.09 million and would pay for stadium expansions such as a field house and new press box.

Proposition C, which costs $28 million, focuses on funding for districtwide technology improvements.

The deadline to register to vote for the bond is April 6. Early voting is April 24 through May 2, and election day is May 6.
