The Greenville ISD bond proposal includes about $100 million to pay for replacing Greenville Middle School, and about $30 million to for a new early childhood center.

And in Nevada, the Community ISD is seeking $650 million in bonds to pay for multiple major construction projects, improvements and land purchases. far eastern Collin County is among the fastest growing areas in the region. The district has posted information about the proposal at a specially dedicated website, CommunityISDBond.com.
