A Round Rock, TX Independent School District (ISD) citizen bond committee recommended that a $530.1 million bond package be put before the voters in a May 6 election.
Committee members considered bond projects totaling more than $900 million, according to citizen bond committee chair Ron Buffum. He added that the committee was concerned with managing the district’s anticipated growth during the next decade. The various projects would include building new schools, and expanding others.
The recommendation is contingent on a decision by the school board trustees to call for the bond election before a Feb. 17 deadline. A final recommendation from the citizen bond committee needs to be submitted for legal review by Feb. 10. Then a proposed package would come before the trustees at their regular meeting on Feb. 16.
