Bond Steering Committee
In May 2016, the Spring Independent School District Board of Trustees requested the formation of a Bond Steering Committee to explore how to address the outstanding capital needs of the district.
The Bond Steering Committee that was formed included more than 70 people – parents, community members, business leaders, recent graduates, school district retirees and current staff members. The group met weekly throughout the summer to review and develop a proposed bond package for the Board’s consideration.
Eight representatives from the Bond Steering Committee presented the group’s recommended bond package to our Board of Trustees on Aug. 4, 2016 at a Board Work Session, which is open to the public. All of the projects included in the recommended bond package align closely to commitments outlined in the district’s strategic plan, EVERY CHILD 2020, which was launched in May 2015.
On Aug. 9, 2016, the Spring ISD Board of Trustees unanimously accepted the Bond Steering Committee’s recommendation to call for a $330 million bond referendum on the November 2016 ballot.
Not having called for a bond in nearly a decade, the proposed bond package addresses long-awaited district needs in the areas of facilities, technology, and safety and security.
