AISD to discuss proposed bond package

Posted: Updated:

A proposed AISD bond package could end up costing taxpayers $86 more dollars a year.

The Austin school board will meet Monday night to discuss the $890 million bond package.

The majority of the bond, $600million would go toward building four new schools and improvements on eight other campuses. Some of that money would include safety upgrades and more security cameras too.

This is the biggest bond issue that's ever been proposed. The package would cost the average homeowner an additional $86 a year and could be placed on May ballots.

The school board also will continue conversations about the future of troubled Eastside Memorial High School.

On the Feb. 25, the board is scheduled to decide whether to put the bond package up for a vote in May.
