The Round Rock ISD board of trustees voted unanimously to call a $508 million Nov. 6 bond election for “critical needs” projects.
The district chartered a Citizens Bond Committee of more than 250 community volunteers to explore the district’s needs and provide the board with a set of recommendations. The board used those recommendations to develop the project list approved Monday evening.
As presented, the bond proposal would not require a property tax rate increase for Round Rock ISD residents, district officials said Monday evening.
Notable items listed on Monday night’s proposal include:
- $50,152,774 to completely rebuild C.D. Fulkes Middle School
- $48,155,291 to construct a 35th elementary school in the northeast portion of the district
- $44,712,000 for new science classrooms and renovations of the cafeteria and administrative area at McNeil High School
- $32,285,261 to renovate and expand Westwood High School
- $16,140,600 for a practice, teaching and competition indoor pool facility
- $15,000,000 for land, master plan design and Phase 1 construction of a new 500-student building for Early College High School
- $8,940,223 for new classrooms at Brushy Creek Elementary School
- $8,781,696 for new equipment and ground cover for 32 playgrounds and shade structures at 26 playgrounds
