32,000 houses on the horizon

Lamar CISD is projected to add over 32,000 new single-family homes and over 8,600 multi-family homes over the next decade—with an additional 1,000+ students projected each year. This will almost double the amount of housing in the District.


Citizens’ Committee recommends bond election

A 60-member Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee, composed of parents and community members from across the District, met in May and June to study enrollment growth and demographic trends, and to review technology and facility needs. In June, the committee recommended the School Board call for a bond election.


School Bond will impact the average homeowner by $8.33 a month

The average home in Lamar CISD, with a taxable value of $181,727, would see an estimated tax increase of approximately $8.33 a month or $99.95 a year after all bonds have been issued. However, senior citizens whose property taxes are frozen, would not be impacted.
