District Board of Trustees approved calling for a school bond
The Judson ISD Board of Trustees approved calling a bond election for November 8, 2022, in the amount of $345,299,900 million during a meeting Thursday night. The bond program will call for a $0.01 tax rate increase and will impact safety and security throughout the district.
“We have prioritized the needs in the district to focus on safety and security. The safety of our students and staff is important and this bond addresses that issue,” said Dr. Jeanette Ball, Judson ISD Superintendent of Schools. “The bond program will aim to enhance security measures across our district, provide improvements on our properties to ensure safe environmental conditions for students and staff, including addressing growth and overcrowding. In addition, the improvements can be made with a small tax rate increase of $0.01, which is a critical consideration for our homeowners and community.”
The ballot items were brought to the board for consideration based on extensive community input by a diverse group of citizens throughout the district. The Judson ISD Growth & Planning Committee was comprised of parents, community members and educators. The committee was formed to determine the needs of the District and met all year before making a recommendation to the Board of Trustees.
