During the August 17, 2015 Van ISD school board meeting, the Board of Trustees voted to call a $13.2 million bond election asking voters to consider a proposition that, if approved, would address growth and provide needed educational space for current and future Van ISD students. The Board approved the 2015 Bond Package based on the recommendation of the Bond Advisory Committee. The committee, comprised of over thirty parents, business and community leaders, and staff representatives, reviewed demographic and capacity data. The Bond Package was presented to the school board by Kenneth Meadows, spokesman for the Citizen’s Committee.
If approved, this bond election would result in a tax increase of no more than 6.06 cents, or $3.02 monthly on a home valued at $106,209.00. NOTE: Senior Citizens 65 years of age or over will not experience a tax increase as a result of this bond election. The school tax rate and the amount paid are frozen when a taxpayer turns 65 years old.
Early voting will begin Monday, October 19 through Friday, October 30. Election Day is Tuesday, November 3. A list of polling locations will be available closer to Election Day. Van ISD will have additional information about the bond election posted on this webpage.
