Voters approved the Bryan Independent School District’s $175 million bond measure in the November 3, 2020 election.
The school district will begin working immediately to address the areas outlined in the bond, including Safety and Security, New Construction and Additions, Priority Maintenance, Fine Arts Improvements and Land Purchases. All projects are outlined at www.bryanisd.org/bond.
Through aggressive payment of debt and a strong financial rating, Bryan ISD is able to raise the $175 million approved without raising the tax rate which will remain at the recently lowered rate of $1.23. That is a decrease in the tax rate of 11 cents in the last four years.
The total number of votes cast was 33,801, with 17,037 “for,” or 50.4% and 16,764 “against,” or 49.6%.
This completes Bryan ISD’s 2 Bonds, 1 Vision plan, with voters now approving $187 million for Bryan ISD in the last two years, all without raising the tax rate.
Voters also elected Dr. Diedra Davis to the Board of Trustees At-Large place and re-elected Dr. Julie Harlin to the Board of Trustees Place 2 position.
