The construction of the new school is rolling along. The piers are finished and in the next few days the pouring of the whole first floor will be wrapping up. Already the framework for the second floor is going up and it shows how the project is quickly progressing. The school is located near the intersection of Loop 1604 and Coppergate road. As of this writing, the school is unnamed, but name submissions have been received and closed out and the top three possibilities will be brought before the JISD School Board in January. The school is scheduled to open in August 2014 and will draw students from mainly Salinas and Converse Elementary Schools.
The Judson ISD school board took a moment to express their thanks and appreciation for a couple of people who helped with the recent successful bond. Shannon Brown and Rolando Hinojosa (unable to attend) both served on the Bond Committee that got the information about the bond to the voting public. This helped get the facts out about the proposal and was instrumental in the bond winning 64 percent of the vote on election night. Thank you for your commitment.
The 2013 Judson ISD Bond is pretty short and to the point. There are only two items that the $83 million bond would fund. Election Day is May 11th, and each voter should be well informed about what the bond involves and what it means to them. The attached flyer gives you a concise look at the bond as well as when early voting begins and ends and where you can vote. Get the facts so you can make the decision you feel is best.
If you've seen the video or attended one of the public meetings on the 2013 Judson ISD Bond and you'd still like some more information, there is more. There is a fact sheet that will give you more facts about the upcoming bond election. It explains what's proposed and what it will mean to you. Click on the link below for the fact sheet. The election is May 11th at each one of the district's middle schools.
May 11, 2013 voters in the Judson ISD will be deciding on an $83-million bond proposal. The bond includes the building of one new elementary school and one new high school within the district without a projected tax rate increase. The details of the proposal are included in this short video presentation. Questions about the bond can be directed to the Judson ISD Administration Office at 945-5100.
