Voters in McKinney ISD will head to the polls May 1 to weigh in on four propositions that officials have said are necessary for the district's students. There are also four board of trustees seats on the ballot. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Proposition A would determine how the district makes its required recapture payments to the state each year. Proposition B asks voters for an increase in the tax rate that, if approved, would result in a decrease in the district's tax rate for debt service. The result would be about a 3-cent decrease to the overall tax rate. Proposition C seeks approval for $245 million in bonds for a new elementary school and expansion and renovation projects around the district. Proposition D calls for $30 million in bonds to purchase a laptop or iPad for every student.

As far as candidates, the McKinney ISD board of trustees Place 1 race has incumbent Maria McKinzie facing challenger Larry Jagours. The Place 2 seat is between incumbent Philip Hassler and Anthony Congine. The Place 3 board of trustees seat is a three-way race among incumbent Kathi Livezey, Erwin Garcia and Chad Green. Four candidates are seeking the Place 7 board seat: Serena Ashcroft, Joy Booth, Harvey Oaxaca and J.B. Franze.
