VOTE ON SATURDAY, MAY 6, 2017
Working with the Board of Trustees, teachers and administrators from across the district developed a list of requested items to consider for inclusion in a 2017 bond package. Van Alstyne ISD has been evaluating current facilities and equipment, ongoing enrollment growth and district priorities with the Board of Trustees to collectively compile a list of items that reflect
responsible stewardship and a forward-thinking mindset.
Several projects are planned to be completed with the passage of the bond, including a new 82,500 SF elementary school with a storm shelter, renovations to the existing elementary school and the funds to acquire land for future expansion for the district.
What is a bond? A bond is similar to a home mortgage in many ways. It is a contract to repay borrowed money with an interest rate over time. Bonds are sold by school districts to competing lenders to raise funds to pay for the costs of construction, renovations and equipment.
