School Board approves Bond Proposal

The Lorena ISD School Board voted unanimously to seek voter approval for a $38.9 Million bond issue. This process has been a community effort over the past several months with a Bond Facility Planning Committee. The Committee included citizens, city leaders, board members, teachers, and parents. The Committee dedicated several months to data collection, evaluations, and planning to put this bond package together. This plan includes district-wide additions & renovations. 

 The district’s financial advisor has determined that there would be a school tax rate impact to finance this bond. This will include an increase to the district’s I&S tax rate of 20.7 cents per $100 valuation. 

 A list of items that will be on the bond referendum for citizens to vote on is outlined below. 

Proposition A

  • Elementary School Additions & Renovations
    • Additional space for 200 students per grade level 
    • (800 students total) Grades 2-5
  • Middle School locker room additions/renovations
  • High School restroom ADA upgrades
  • Dressing rooms at the PAC
  • Band Hall Expansion

Proposition B

  • High School Sports Medicine

We are asking every citizen to be educated about the bond. It is important to have your voice heard during this election. Remind your friends, neighbors, and relatives to get involved and ask questions. Lorena ISD residents will have the opportunity to vote on the bond referendum beginning with early voting on April 22 – 30, 2024, and on Election Day, May 4, 2024.
