What is included in the 2019 bond package?

Posted by:


The Aledo ISD Board of Trustees approved the Bearcat Growth Committee’s (BGC) recommendation of a $149,950,000 bond proposal, which will be presented on the November 5 ballot as a single proposition and will not include a tax rate increase.

The BGC, which was led by community co-chairs Christi James and Jim Scott and included 36 fellow community members, held 10 meetings from January to August examining the District’s increasing student enrollment growth data, financial information, district-wide facility needs, and instructional goals. The BGC built a bond recommendation which focuses on student capacity needs and learning spaces at the middle and elementary school levels.

The bond package includes funding for two new campuses, renovations to three existing campuses, replacement furniture at three elementary schools, land for future school sites, and school buses.
