2020 Bond

Voters Approve the Bryan ISD 2020 Bond

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.

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.

Bryan ISD Bond Fact Sheet Voting Information
 
The Bryan ISD Board of Trustees called a $175,000,000 Bond Election at their meeting on August 3, 2020.  An election will take place on Tuesday, November 3.  If approved, the bond will focus on the areas of Safety and Security, New Construction and Additions, Priority Maintenance, Fine Arts Improvements and Land Purchase. 
 
There will be no tax rate increase if this bond passes.  Bryan ISD has lowered the tax rate by 11 cents over the last four years.
 
In May 2019, voters approved the initial $12 million bond with 86% of the vote. This bond allows Bryan ISD to take care of immediate needs related to safety/security, transportation, Career & Technical Education, roofing and maintenance.  
 
Both the May 2019 Bond and a potential November 2020 Bond will be conducted through a Bond Oversight Committee.  Projects for the November 2020 Bond were evaluated through meetings with all stakeholder groups including students, parents, staff and the community, and if passed will be driven by a Bond Steering Committee.  
 
Both bonds will be conducted with full transparency, with all projects listed here on the Bryan ISD website, including progress updates and notifications of any changes to the original proposal.
