Humble ISD to Hold Bond Referendum on May 5
No increase to debt service tax rate required
The Humble ISD Board of Trustees unanimously voted 7-0 to hold a $575 million bond election on May 5. Issuance of these bonds would not require an increase in the debt service tax rate.
Proposed bond projects include:
- Construction of a new elementary school, a new middle school and a second transportation center;
- Rebuilding Lakeland Elementary School and Kingwood Middle School on their current site, and rebuilding the Kingwood Agricultural Barn on a new site;
- Atascocita High School to add classrooms;
- All high school campuses to add a third gymnasium;
- Humble High School library and cafeteria;
- 22 elementary schools and the Community Learning Center to add a multipurpose room where there is not an indoor facility for PE and assemblies;
- Career and Technology classrooms;
- Charles Street Stadium;
- Expanding the District Police Station/Emergency Operations Center and updating fire and safety systems at schools;
- Adding field turf at four high school campuses that do not have turf, installing wood gym floors at 7 middle schools that currently have sport court, and installing field turf at the district baseball/softball complex;
- Updating technology infrastructure throughout the district;
- Repairing and replacing roofs, air-conditioning systems and other building components.
Early voting begins April 23. Election Day is May 5.
The plan was developed based on the work of the Citizens Bond Advisory Committee, which met from September through December and presented a report at the January School Board meeting. The School Board approved an order calling for the bond election at its February School Board meeting.
