The Community ISD Board of Trustees called a bond election for $650 million during the Feb. 14 regular meeting.
Superintendent Tonya Knowlton, who started with Community ISD in August 2021, said the board and administration worked with a bond committee and community members to develop the bond package by reviewing the district’s facilities, demographics, equipment and educational spaces.
“We wanted to have transparency and encourage participation,” Knowlton said. “We opened it up to anyone who wanted to have a voice and give input.”
According to the district website, CISD has been planning to expand facilities in order to meet unprecedented student enrollment growth. Knowlton said that in May 2021, there 2,829 students in the district. The most recent data, says Knowlton, shows current enrollment at 3,486.
