Bond propositions defeated

Voters defeated the Round Rock ISD $572.1 million Bond package on May 6, which was proposed to address the needs of growth, innovation, and safety for 48,200 students.

“We are fortunate to have the best teachers and educators in the state of Texas and in the nation at Round Rock ISD,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Steve Flores said. “We will continue to serve kids and provide a world class service for our families.”

The unofficial election results included voter turnout equaling 10.5 percent.

“I want to thank our Citizens Bond Committees and Board for their efforts. I am confident we can continue to be the Destination District for Public Schools,” Dr. Flores said.

Round Rock ISD will need to address funding and strategies for capital renewal projects, replacing outdated technology, and to accommodate crowded schools. Those next steps will be discussed at a future Board of Trustees meeting. The Board will adopt its budget for the 2017-18 school year in June. It will set its tax rate in September.
