Bryan ISD is proposing a two-phase bond, with an election in May 2019 and an election in May 2020.
The Bryan ISD Board of Trustees called a $175,000,000 Bond Election at their meeting on January 21, 2020.
An election will take place on Saturday, May 2. 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.
The bond will raise the tax rate less than a penny, at 0.00875 or .875 of a cent. Bryan ISD has lowered the tax rate by eight cents over the last two and a half years. Taxes are frozen for citizens 65 years of age and older, and their taxes will not increase if the bond is approved. For more information, please visit the 2020 Bond page.
Both the May 2019 Bond and a potential May 2020 Bond will be conducted through a Bond Oversight Committee. Projects for the May 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.
