LISD bond program numbers explained

Starting Monday, voters within Lewisville ISD will go to the polls to decide whether to approve $737.6 million in bond financing for capital projects in the district.

While that dollar figure is large, the level of debt both before and after the election are very comparable to other local districts and districts of similar size to LISD.

Previous articles have explained the process by which the Facilities Advisory Committee evaluated the district’s facilities and needs, and proposed the 2017 bond program.

The Lewisville Texan Journal has obtained current debt information from the district as well as forecasted issues and tax rates for the bond package if it passes.  Here, the LTJ explains what the impacts will be if it passes, and how the district compares to other local school districts.

    Vote NO against the Bond. Need a lot more discussion on individual projects as to why it is beneficial to the students vis-a-vis some other vested interest group. We cannot commit to 30 years of such large tax increases based on a bunch of people deciding that they need to undertake all these projects. The citizens need to review the rationale and we need to have open debate on this. We cannot let LISD run such closed room deal-making within the room to get everyone to vote for it. Do not want Washington DC down here in Lewisville.
