Bond 2020 Overview

The San Antonio ISD Board of Trustees voted August 17, 2020, to call for a $1.3 billion bond election, with two separate propositions – for school renovations and technology – to appear on the ballot. The decision to move forward on the November 3, 2020 elections followed recommendations from a community-based Blue Ribbon Task Force, as part of the District’s long-range facilities master plan.

Proposition A. $1.21 billion for:
  • Significant renovations for 36 campuses.
  • Safety upgrades at all schools.
  • Replacement of HVAC equipment that is more than 15 years old, benefiting another 30 campuses.
  • Buildings that house new school models -- to renovate classroom spaces as grade levels are added.
Proposition B. $90 million for technology upgrades for all schools.
  • Equipping every classroom with high-speed connectivity, audio systems, interactive smart boards, devices, support tools and the necessary infrastructure.
Voters overwhelmingly approved both propositions.

Under Proposition A, totaling $1.21 billion, the bond will address significant renovation needs for 36 campuses. This includes 21 schools whose main buildings have not been fully renovated in more than 50 years, and most with 30-year-old infrastructure. In addition, funds will go toward the final phase to complete campus renovations at 15 schools that received partial renovations under Bond 2016 or
Bond 2010. 

Of the 43 schools with the oldest infrastructure on the long-range facilities master plan, this bond will fund renovations for nearly half of them, and completely renovate the majority of the largest schools.

SAISD schools will benefit from the 2020 bond with security upgrades. 

In addition, all outdated HVAC equipment will be replaced, benefiting another 30 campuses, and at the 21 aging schools to receive renovations, high-quality, modern HVAC systems will be installed as part of that work, boosting indoor air quality by allowing for fresh air from the outside to be pulled into the system and circulated throughout the school.

Additionally, funds are going to go toward buildings with new school models to renovate classroom spaces as grade levels are added. 

Under Proposition B, at $90 million, technology upgrades in every classroom will provide high-speed connectivity, individual devices, support tools, interactive smart boards and audio systems.
