How are construction timelines set?

  • The projects covered by the 2018 bond referendum will be undertaken from 2018 through completion. Some factors that impact the schedule are:

    • how imminently critical the need;
    • the volume and complexity of projects that can be effectively managed simultaneously;
    • economies of scale that can be achieved by bundling similar projects when doing so maximizes resources and is practical;
    • the amount of bonds that can be issued at one time without increasing Humble ISD’s tax rate;
    • minimize interruptions to the campus environment.

Humble ISD's bond rating ranks in top 3 percent statewide

  • Moody’s and Standard and Poor’s bond rating agencies assigned Aa1 and Aaa enhanced ratings, respectively, to Humble ISD bonds – ranking the district in the top three percent of school districts in Texas.
