Austin ISD 2017 Bond Program
The Austin ISD 2017 Bond Program is an investment in the district’s facilities, teachers and staff, and students. Student success is the ultimate goal and the district’s driving force.
On Nov. 7, 2017, a majority, 72 percent, of Austin voters passed Austin Independent School District’s bond proposal for $1,050,984,000 to create 21st-century learning spaces for all students. More than two years of intensive analysis, planning and work went into the bond, which is designed to replace, improve, renovate and equip facilities for our approximately 83,000 students and 12,000 employees. Every school benefits.
Key projects in the bond include:
• Constructing new or modernized campus facilities;
• Improvements to address overcrowding and critical needs; and,
• Districtwide improvements to technology for teachers and students and transportation.
You can find a detailed overview of every project in the 2017 Bond Book. All of these projects are informed by the Facility Master Plan, a high-level guideline for all district facilities for decades to come. This bond program website is a comprehensive look into the bond progress and milestones.
