Background 

On November 7, 2017, 72% of Austin voters passed Austin Independent School District's bond proposal for $1.05 billion in funding to create 21st century learning spaces for all students District-wide.  The largest school bond ever passed by the District, the Austin ISD 2017 Bond Program is an investment in the district's facilities, teachers, staff and students. 

The key projects in the bond include:

  • constructing 17 new or modernized campus facilities 
  • improvements to address overcrowding and critical needs 
  • District-wide improvements to technology for teachers, students and transportation

The District-wide improvements included in the 2017 Bond Program include technology updates for students and teachers computers and computer labs, transportation upgrades with replacement buses, facilities for medically fragile students, upgrades to athletic facilities, theater and fine arts repairs, updated police equipment, and much more. 

Progress update August 2018

As Austin ISD approaches the one-year anniversary of the bond proposal, we can begin to see the plans for modernization of several campuses begin to take shape.  In this exclusive interview Facilities and Bond Planning and Advisory Committee member, Kristin Ashy, gives us an update on the District's progress on fulfilling the 2017 bond.

Progress update September 2018

The original Doss Elementary School was built in 1970 to accommodate 543 students, but had been significantly over capacity for years. On September 6th, 2018, ground was broken at Doss Elementary to start the rebuild and modernization of the campus.  

With over 850 students enrolled at Doss, this new campus is highly anticipated and should be completed for in time for the start of school in August 2020. 

Stay tuned for more updates.
