KISD community committee recommending $676M bond package

Posted

The Katy ISD Board of Trustees will hold a special board meeting Feb. 8 to consider a bond package of more than $676 million. The bond package was developed by the district in conjunction with the KISD Community Bond Advisory Committee.

The bond package, if approved by trustees to be on the May 1 ballot, will have Katy ISD voters considering four separate ballot measures:

  • Proposition A: New Schools, Renovations, Safety & Security and Building Component Replacements $591,368,568
  • Proposition B: Classroom & Campus Technology $59,755,242
  • Proposition C: Natatorium for the new High School #10 $13,842,610
  • Proposition D: Campus Athletic Building Component Replacements $11,260,000

The CBAC, which was made up of more than 100 community members including parents, retirees, teachers, students and principals, recommended the bond package after three meetings. During those meetings, committee members heard briefings regarding the district’s capacity needs, how quickly the district’s student body is growing, community support for potential bonds, the district’s ability to shoulder the bonds financially and bond election regulations, according to a KISD statement.

Trustees are expected to vote on whether to put the bond on the May ballot at their Feb. 8 meeting. More information on Katy ISD’s bond debt and how bonds are managed may be found here.
