Round Rock ISD issues statement regarding failed bond package

  1. This isn’t a Lexus district like Southlake or Westlake. Give us a good proposal without trying to build the most expensive high school in the state of Texas, proving you really need it, let Round Rock pay for a natatorium if they want to be the (snark) “Sports Capital of Texas” and we’ll vote for a proposal that leaves the “nice to haves” out of it.

  2. Making sure the Travis side becomes the redhedded step child of the district from now on!
