The Wylie Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved calling a School Bond Election for November 7, 2023.
A Growth & Planning Committee made up of Wylie ISD community members developed the proposal in conjunction with the staff and administration. Their primary task was to develop and present to the Board of Trustees a long-term plan that included a recommendation for implementation.
“I want to thank our board, staff, and community for their work over 31 months to help get us to this point,” Wylie ISD Superintendent Joey Light said. “This decision is based on carefully considering all areas of need around our district while balancing the expectations of our community.”
Texas school districts do not receive state funding for renovating or building new schools. Instead, they must receive funds through school bond elections. The District has funded over $42 million in major projects through sound fiscal management. The 2023 Bond will ask voters to consider a $269 million package in three propositions. Early voting begins October 23 and ends November 3, and Election Day is Tuesday, November 7.
