Trustees call bond election for November

Aug 02, 2017 | Community Relations

Lamar CISD’s Board of Trustees has called a bond election for Nov. 7, 2017. The Trustees reached the unanimous decision Aug. 1 at a Special Meeting. 

If approved, the bond will fund the District’s sixth high school and junior high and three additional elementary schools.

In addition to schools and land, the bond would also fund improvements for many campuses, transportation, food service, technology and athletics.

The total cost for the bond is projected to be $445,451,000.

Lamar CISD remains one of the fastest-growing school districts in the state of Texas. Over 70 percent of the bond proposal is for new schools and land.

A 61-member Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee (CBAC) met in April and May to create a recommendation for the School Board to review.
