SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The SAISD Board of Trustees  has agreed to place a $1.3 billion bond proposal on the November ballot.

Residents in the District will be asked to approve two separate propositions for school renovations and technology.

Proposition A is a $1.21 billion proposal to fund renovations at 36 campuses, provide safety upgrades to all schools and replace air-conditioning chillers that are more than 15 years old.

Proposition B is a $90 million plan to fund technology upgrades in all schools, equipping every classroom with high-speed connectivity, audio systems, devices, support tools, interactive smart boards and the necessary infrastructure.

SAISD says taxpayers would not see a tax rate increase from the bond, based on District projections.

The proposed $1.3 billion bond package follows recommendations from a community-based Blue Ribbon Task Force as part of  SAISD’s long-range facilities plan.

The election is November 3.
