After postponing a decision, Fort Bend ISD’s board of trustees voted to call an election for a nearly $1.26 billion bond during a Feb. 16 special meeting. Of the four options presented, district staff recommended the largest package to the board, which will be split into three propositions on the ballot.
The $1.18 billion Proposition A encompasses construction, security and transportation upgrades, along with a $19.2 million transportation facility. Proposition B would cover nearly $52.5 million for technology updates, and the $22.9 million Proposition C would fund a new district natatorium.
“This is when [our public gets] to actually have a serious say in what our school district looks like,” Board Member Angie Hanan said.
The bond election will be held during the 2023 general election on May 6.
