Lamar CISD Trustees Call Bond Election for November

Aug 12, 2020 | Community Relations

Lamar CISD’s Board of Trustees voted unanimously at the Aug. 6 Special Meeting to call for a $792.5 million bond election set for Nov. 3, 2020.

If approved, the bond will fund the District’s seventh high school and junior high, three additional elementary schools and a second stadium.

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

Due to recent legislation, the 2020 Bond will be separated into four propositions on the November ballot. To learn more and view the projects in each proposition, click here.
