In December, the Bond Planning Committee presented their recommendation for a 2024 bond package. At the January Board of Trustees meeting, trustees had the opportunity to discuss the Bond Planning committee’s recommendations and considered whether to call a May 2024 bond election.
If the voters approve the bond election, NBISD will have three active bond programs. Multiple bond programs in a fast growth district is evidence of community support for our students.
Before board members make a decision to call a third bond election in six years, Dr. Arterbury wanted to give the Board and the community an update on where we stand with the 2018 and 2021 bond programs. During the December board meeting, trustees requested an update on the 2018 and 2021 bond programs so that is what was presented at the January meeting.
Under the leadership of a new Superintendent and new CFO, NBISD recently added a Bond Program Finance Manager position to ensure that there is someone working with bond accounting on a daily basis. You can expect to see regular updates on the 2018 and 2021 and possible 2024 bond projects through the NBISD website.
“We understand that two bond projects, and now possibly three bond projects, can be tough for those not in it every day to keep up with,” said Dr. Arterbury. “We are doing our best to be transparent and make it easy for everyone to see how bond funds are being spent to provide the best education for Every Student. Every Day.”
