During the February 13th special board meeting, the Caddo Mills ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept the recommendation of the District's Collaborative Visioning Committee to call for a $290 million bond package for the May 6th, 2023, Election. The Collaborative Visioning Committee, which represents a cross-section of the community, including local citizens, business leaders, parents, students, and school staff, developed and recommended the bond package. The committee analyzed demographic studies, growth projections, and district financial information. In December, a community survey was sent out, and nearly 600 people responded. 95% were in favor of a bond for building schools, and 93% were in favor of a bond for athletic facilities. During the final Collaborative Visioning Meeting on January 24th, the committee reviewed survey results and prioritized critical areas of focus; the consensus was then to recommend that Caddo Mills ISD call a bond for the following:
Proposition A: $240 Million Plans for a new Elementary in Trailstone, a new Intermediate campus, additions to the High School and Middle School campus, career and technical education expansions, district renovations, District-wide Safety and Security Upgrades, and much more
Proposition B: $50 Million New Baseball/Softball Complex, New Stadium for football, soccer, band, drill, track and cheer. There will be no tax rate increase. CMISD’s current I&S Rate is $0.50 and will remain at $0.50 if the bond passes or fails. Approving this bond would allow the district to sell bonds and build schools and facilities as our student population doubles quickly. Election Day is set for Saturday, May 6, and early voting runs from April 24 through May 2. More information will be available through the district's website, social media outlets, and various community meetings over the next two months.
Thank you for your support of CMISD.
