SAISD Bond Election Set for Nov. 2

The SAISD Board of Trustees has called for a $515 million bond election for November 2, 2010. The funds would pay for renovations to schools across the district—where some buildings are more than 100 years old, and almost half are more than 50 years old.

Aging facilities create challenges, as major systems need to be repaired or replaced. The bond would address infrastructure repairs for a number of schools, as well as classroom additions and upgrades to meet current standards for instructional environments.

Also included in the proposal are campus safety, security and technology enhancements, new or renovated space for career and vocational programs, new playground equipment and athletic tracks, and the renovation of Alamo Stadium and Convocation Center.



Bond Highlights

  • Replaces obsolete classroom computers with new computers and related hardware
  • Extensively renovates 22 schools – 14 fully updated to modern facilities
  • Funds new or upgraded facilities for high school career programs and career technology labs at middle schools
  • Renovates playgrounds or adds playground equipment at 48 primary schools
  • Renovates Alamo Stadium to a quality comparable to neighboring district stadiums
  • If the bond is passed, the Board will establish a Citizens Bond Oversight Committee to monitor and report to the Board and the public on the progress of the bond program's implementation
