On August 14, Amarillo ISD Trustees called a $100 million school bond election that was approved by area voters November 7.

“We are thankful for the trust and support of our community,” said AISD Board Vice President Scott Flow. “This victory will give the district a much-needed boost to address some of the maintenance issues that come with older facilities, as well as add an additional layer of safety and security measures at some of our schools.”

The bond focuses on four main areas to be addressed: Safety & Security, Classroom Additions, Facility Updates, and Restoration & Replacement.

The district’s aging facilities have been a focus because nearly 80 percent of schools are more than 50 years old.

The 2017 bond package includes enhanced safety and security measures with the addition of school doors with bullet resistant glass and improvements to student drop-off/pick-up areas. The bond also calls for new classroom additions at four schools and facility updates for bathrooms, locker rooms and high school auditoriums.  The bond also includes restoration and replacement of school plumbing and sewer lines, drainage areas, and other basic infrastructure improvements.
