AISD Map Breaks Down Bond Package Money by School
The Austin School District's 2013 bond proposal is a $892 million package consisting of four bond propositions. The projects range from more security and technology in schools and basic repairs to the construction of new schools and additional classrooms.
AISD has created an interactive map breaking down how much money and what projects are proposed for a majority of schools in the district.
The proposals range from extremely vague ("Install technology upgrades") to more specific ("Building improvements include repair/replacement of exterior gymnasium wall surfaces, and approximately 73,900 square feet of roofing").
The proposals are a mixture of requests from specific school campuses and district-wide initiatives to improve school buildings and academics.
On May 11, voters will decide whether or not AISD can issue the bonds for capital projects.
