Bond Overview

The Dumas Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously approved a $107 million bond referendum to be included on the November 5, 2019 election ballot. It has been 11 years since the last DISD bond. If approved by voters, the proposal will address aging school facilities, classroom spaces that are smaller in square footage than state requirements, and energy efficiency projects.

 

The Dumas ISD Facility Advisory Committee recommended Trustees consider a bond proposal after the group spent five months studying the district’s most critical facility needs. This group of 36 parents, grandparents, graduates, staff, business owners, elected officials, ministers, and community members volunteered and donated more than 820 hours to examine needs and develop a plan.

 

The Committee toured schools, studied reports, and evaluated the condition of existing buildings. Their efforts provided the District with a long-range Master Facility Plan and a recommendation to the Board of Trustees on how to address facility needs through a bond proposal.
