Based on preliminary May 6 election day results, residents within the Comal ISD district cast their ballots to approve two of the three bond propositions totaling a record $634 million worth of projects.

The bond is the fifth called by CISD in the past 10 years in an attempt to keep up with the rapid growth in the region.

The propositions are:
  • Proposition A: growth and reinvestment for $560.56 million
  • Proposition B: stadiums for $46.1 million
  • Proposition C: technology for $28 million
Propositions A and C narrowly passed with 51.15% and 51.62% approval, respectively. Proposition B failed with 39.87% of voters opposing the bond.

“While we are very disappointed that proposition B did not pass so that we could move forward with the projects at Canyon Lake and Davenport high schools, we are pleased that the community supported propositions A and C,” CISD Assistant Superintendent Steve Stanford said. “With the passage of these two propositions, we will now be able to move forward with the construction of new schools to address growth, take care of existing facilities, enhance our safety and security program, and ensure that students and teachers have the technology they need in the classroom.”

The Mayfair development will lead to student growth in the district. Through the approval of Proposition A, CISD will purchase the first elementary site in Mayfair. A middle school and high school site is planned for the near future as well, according to developer SouthStar Communities.

“We are thrilled to have Comal ISD as the first official residents of Mayfair, and we look forward to welcoming educators and families to the four new schools planned over the next several years,” SouthStar Communities CEO Thad Rutherford said. “Our partnership with the district through this bond will help ensure high-quality, accessible education for the growing New Braunfels community for generations to come.”

In the race for CISD board of trustees for District 4, Russ Garner won the race with 63.78% of the vote. Garrison G. Maurer followed with 36.22% of the vote.

The bond will not have a direct impact on the tax rate, but the rise in property values could lead to higher bills for residents regardless.
