SAISD Bond elections set for Nov. 3, 2020
08/17/2020

August 17, 2020 -- The SAISD Board of Trustees tonight called for a $1.3 billion bond election, with two separate propositions to appear on the Nov. 3, 2020 ballot for school renovations and technology.

The decision to move forward on the Nov. 3 elections followed recommendations from a community-based Blue Ribbon Task Force, as part of the District’s long-range facilities master plan.

Taxpayers would not see a tax rate increase from the bond, based on District projections.

Under Proposition A, $1.21 billion: The bond would address significant renovation needs for 36 campuses, provide safety upgrades to all schools, and replace all air-conditioning chillers that are more than 15 years old.

--Renovations include 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 would go toward the final phase to complete campus renovations at 15 schools that received partial renovations under Bond 2016 or Bond 2010.

--All SAISD schools would benefit from the security upgrades. In addition, all outdated air-conditioning chillers would be replaced, benefiting another 30 campuses.

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

Proposition B, at $90 million, would fund technology upgrades in all schools, equipping every classroom with high-speed connectivity, audio systems, devices, support tools, interactive smart boards and the necessary infrastructure.
