Aldine ISD schedules community meetings on School Bond Issue

ALDINE – Aldine ISD will hold 6 School Bond Community Meetings to explain the need for the bond funding to the voters. The First Meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, September 26 at Aldine High School, starting at 6:00pm.

The meetings are a chance for voters to hear about the proposed $1.8 billion bond on the November 7 ballot.

During six community meetings, voters can learn about the Aldine Independent School District’s proposed $1.8 billion bond.

Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney said, “This bond represents the next chapter in the story of #MyAldine. It is how we fulfill our vision of providing choices and opportunities for future generations. A bond is much more than just transforming buildings and infrastructure. It is an affirmation that, as a community, we are committed to providing our students with the learning environments they need to continue moving forward and be future-ready.”

If the total bond package is approved with the required simple majority (50% plus one), the district plans to spend $1.8 billion as follows:

The 2023 school bond has three focuses: Safety and Security, Facility Enhancements, and Instructional Technology; It is divided into three propositions.
