Bond 2015 » Background

Background

On November 3, 2015, voters of Magnolia ISD community approved a bond package, totaling $92 million. The bond package provides facilities to accommodate our current and future growth, addresses aging campuses and campus improvements, provides additional safety and security, and 10 new buses.
 
The bond website will be transitioned into a bond construction website in order to keep our citizens information about the status of the bond projects.
 
Thank you for supporting Magnolia ISD!
 
 
In response to student enrollment growth, as well as aging facilities and capital improvement needs, the Magnolia ISD Board of Trustees asked for a review of current and future facility needs. 
 
The Facility Planning Committee (FPC), consisting of parents, community members and business members, met for four months to conduct the study. The FPC analyzed enrollment projections (demographics), toured existing facilities, and reviewed district financials and tax implications. They examined elementary and junior high capacities, technology upgrades, updates to safety and security measures, and reviewed different facility planning solutions. 
 
The FPC presented the $92 million bond recommendation to the MISD School Board on May 18, 2015. After reviewing the committee's recommendation and the goals of the district, the MISD School Board officially called a bond referendum on Monday, August 17, 2015.
