On Aug. 15, GISD Board of Trustees called the $166 million bond referendum which would fund the building of two new elementary schools; technology upgrades; safety and security projects; and a new swim facility, among other projects. The bond is split into two propositions because the $15.5 million swim facility is on its own proposition.
The bond carries no tax increase.
"As one of the cornerstones of our community, the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce believes our public schools are one of the best economic investments our community can make. Public education provides economic benefits to everyone in the community, not just students," the release said.
The proposition will be on the ballot on Nov. 6 with early voting starting Oct. 22.
