Judson ISD voters approved $214 million of the 2016 Bond in an important election that will be instrumental in the positive direction of the education of our students. The following message is one of appreciation from JISD Superintendent Dr. Carl A. Montoya to voters who both participated and supported the bond.

In the February regular meeting of the Judson ISD School Board, trustees approved the call for the 2016 Bond for the May election. This bond includes four options which total out to approximately $265 million. In the coming days and weeks you will be hearing a lot about this bond so that every voter can be informed of its impact and what each option involves. The flyer below gives a general overview of the bond and the link below will take you to a more detailed look at what the bond will mean to individual campuses.
After all the early voting and election day votes were counted, the Judson ISD Board will have two new members taking their seats when it convenes for its regular meeting later this month. While sitting Board President Steve Salyer retained his seat over challenger Rick Page, June Adair lost her bid for re-election after she was defeated by Converse City Councilmember Renee Paschall and Incumbent Sonny Merrell who was appointed earlier this school year to his position after Beth Williams moved, will be replaced by former JISD Principal Melinda Salinas. The results will not be official until the vote is canvassed on May 20th during a special board meeting.
As far as the newcomers are concerned, Renee Paschall is expected to resign her position on the Converse City Council to take her position on the JISD Board. Melinda Salinas is currently Assistant Superintendent at Poteet ISD, but lives within the Judson ISD boundaries. Both are expected to be sworn in and take their seats on the board after the canvassing of the vote. Take a look at the results below.
