Northside ISD Asks Voters To Greenlight $849 Million Bond For Infrastructure, Safety

Apr 30, 2018

Northside ISD, the biggest independent school district in San Antonio and fourth-largest in the state, is seeking almost $849 million to enhance and grow facilities. 

The district estimates that 67 percent of funds in the 2018 bond would be put towards renovating, upgrading, or reconstructing existing buildings. Over $280 million is dedicated to constructing four new schools.

Bond estimates also allocate funding towards safety measures like fire alarm systems and "bullet-resistant" lobbies, as well as replacing projectors and other technology on campuses. 

Is the bond likely to make an impact on local tax rates

How is the fast-growing district adapting to the area's demands and meeting students' needs? 

Tuesday is the last day for early voting in the May 5 elections. For more information, click here.
