2019 Bond Success Stories
Thank you AISD Community!!
We want to thank the community for their support of the district bond election in 2019, and we are excited about the progress of the next phases in the process and about how they will help improve student success.
One of our objectives in this process is to make sure we keep you, our stakeholder, informed of the progress along the way:
- Renovations to Softball Field - complete - was 10.2% ($360,000) under budget
- Stage at Central Elementary - complete - 15% ($252,207) under budget
- New Transportation Center - complete - 10% ($1.8 million) under budget
- New CTE Center - open at start of 2022-2023 school year - estimated to be 3.68% ($2,188,000) under budget
- (Check out the Process and Updates link to see the latest progress of our projects.)
Of the allocated $90 million for identified projects that was voted on in 2019, AISD is only selling $85 million in bonds to complete these projects. Also, bonds have been sold while decreasing properties’ tax rates.
Thank you again for supporting AISD and investing in our children’s future by making sure they have access to the best education possible. Please continue to visit the 2019 Bond website for updates throughout the different stages of the bond process, and please let us know if you have any questions about the process.
2019 AISD Bond Referendum
The 2019 Bond will not increase the tax rate for Angleton ISD taxpayers because of industry growth within the AISD boundaries, and the overall impact on AISD property owners will be a 7-cent reduction in the school district tax rate due to new legislation.
The board approved the recommendations of the Bond Advisory Committee, a group of 27 community leaders, parents and local business owners from a diverse cross-section of the community. The committee met five times over three months to review the information provided by the school district and industry professionals, analyze current AISD facility conditions and needs, and tour other school districts’ facilities. They also provided input to district administration before ultimately finalizing which projects would be presented to the school board for consideration as part of the bond referendum.
The $90 million in bonded debt can be raised without increasing a household’s property tax rate.
