VOTERS APPROVE DENTON ISD BOND PROPOSITION
On May 5, 2018, voters in Denton ISD overwhelmingly approved the school district’s bond proposal with 74.4% of voters in favor of the $750.5 million capital improvement plan, the largest in the district’s history, and a record 10,615 votes were cast.
There will be no increase to the ad valorum tax rate as a result of the May 5, 2018 election. The overall tax rate has been $1.54 since 2014-2015 and the school board and administration plans to maintain the total rate at $1.54.
Development of the May 2018 bond package involved an in-depth process of information gathering, research and community input by the Denton ISD Citizens’ Advisory Committee (CAC). The Board charged the CAC with assessing and prioritizing the district’s current and long-term facility needs and making a recommendation that addresses the growth and facility needs. The CAC met eight times over a five-month period to study the needs, analyze growth, and made its recommendation to the Board of Trustees on January 23, 2018.
