In the fall of 2020 the CISD Facility Advisory Committee (FAC), made up of parent and community representatives, engaged in researching and examining the prospect of a future bond referendum to address existing and new facilities in Cleburne ISD.
The formation of the FAC stemmed from a unanimous recommendation for new campus grade alignments from the Academic Alignment Advisory Committee (AAAC). The AAAC, a panel of parents, community members, and teachers, presented their recommendation to the CISD Board of Trustees on September 21, following a review of District information and data focused on student learning and social/emotional development in grades 5-8.
From September 2020 to January 2021 the Facility Advisory Committee conducted facility tours, research, examination, and deliberations based upon new and existing needs of the District, demographic trends, growth in enrollment, and financial capacity. Following a consensus on proposed projects and long-term facilities plan on January 13th, committee representatives presented their no tax-rate increase bond recommendation to the board of trustees on January 19, 2021.
The board of trustees unanimously approved the $90.7 million bond referendum for the May 1 election ballot.
If Approved By Voters, Bond 2021 Will Produce No Tax Rate Increase for CISD Taxpayers.
If the 2021 Bond is not approved, the existing grade alignment will remain.
