2. Why is BISD placing at $15 million levy on the February 2019 ballot?
BISD is experiencing a budget shortfall for its construction projects due to a combination of reason such as:
- Unprecedented escalation in our region’s construction industry
- Anticipated funding sources for construction projects that fell through
- Revised local and state building codes
The $15 million levy will allow BISD to finish its building commitments made in the 2016 bond and also provide funding for district-wide security upgrades and essential renovations through 2025.
