Planning committee recommends $510M bond for CISD

conroe-school-district-logoThe Conroe ISD Board of Trustees got its first look at a recommended $510 million bond proposal that could go to a vote in November.

Scott Moore, a member of the bond committee and associate pastor of First United Methodist Church, said their proposal includes a new high school, a new intermediate school and two new elementary schools in the Oak Ridge feeder zone, as well as a new junior high in the Conroe High School feeder zone.

“There has been one driving question underlining all of our conversations over the past three months. That is, ‘What is best for the students of this school district and what will provide them with the richest learning environment possible?’” Moore said. “Everything we’ve done was with those students in mind.”

Their proposal also includes campus renovations at Austin Elementary and Conroe High School, and a 20-science-classroom addition to Knox Junior High in The Woodlands, as well as money for the district to buy more land later on. click here for complete story
