Voters in all three school districts rejected bond measures presented in the May elections.

  • Today’s general election in Northeast Texas features a number of bond proposals presented by local school districts around the region. The Greenville, Sulphur Springs, and Bonham ISDs are among those with bonds going before local voters.
  • Back in May, Greenville ISD voters rejected a $169 million bond package. The version going before voters today is a $136.5 million bond. Most of the funding would pay for the construction of a new middle school, estimated at about $105 million. A little more than $31 million of the package would go to the construction of a new early childhood center.
  • The Sulphur Springs Independent School District is presenting an $81.5 million bond proposal. Back in May, Sulphur Springs ISD voters rejected a $93 million bond package. The slimmed-down version still features as its centerpiece a new campus for Travis Primary School.
  • The Bonham ISD has placed a $60 million bond proposal on local ballots. Most of the bond would fund a major makeover of L.H. Rather Junior High School. A similar bond proposal from the Bonham ISD was defeated by a single vote in May.
