Proposition Addresses Growth, Safety, Program Expansion, & More
The Channelview ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept the Citizens’ Bond Planning Committee recommendation to call for a $195.4 million bond package addressing district growth, safety, program expansion, and aging infrastructure across the district.
Development of the bond proposal involved an in-depth process of information gathering, research and community input. The district conducted facilities assessments at each campus, a district-wide capacity study, educational planning with campus staff, and in October 2018, formed the Citizens’ Bond Planning Committee (CBPC).
The CBPC, made up of parents, staff, and local community members, met over the course of four months to study and prioritize the district’s current and long-term facility needs. On Tuesday, January 15, the Committee made its recommendation to the Board of Trustees to call for a bond election to be held Saturday, May 4.
“We are extremely grateful to the citizens who worked diligently to develop this plan for the future of our district. We had over 40 community members from all backgrounds come together to provide their input. Their engagement and commitment to the process resulted in a bond proposal that plans for growth and impacts every campus,” said Board President Keith Liggett. “We are excited to bring it forward to the voters for their consideration.”
Some of the proposed projects include:
