New growth in Tomball ISD prompts Bond 2017
On Tuesday, November 7, voters will go to the polls to vote on a $275 million school bond referendum. The bond package provides for new district facilities, renovations at existing campuses, new technology, and additional school buses.
Over the next five years, Tomball ISD is projected to grow by more than 4,500 students. In order to accommodate student growth, the district is proposing to add classrooms by building two new campuses and constructing an additional classroom wing to a high school campus.
This anticipated student growth prompted the district to commission a Facility Planning Steering Committee, which was organized last fall and comprised of 18 community members. These individuals along with other volunteers looked at enrollment projections, analyzed district facility capacities, and then made recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees reviewed the recommendations and unanimously approved the $275 million bond proposal being presented to voters.
