• The 2023 bond development process began in August 2022 when the Board charged the Facilities and Bond Oversight Committee (FBOC), in accordance with policy CCA (Local) and the committee charter, with developing recommendations to present to the Board regarding the potential need for a bond election. The FBOC, which consists of a mix of citizens appointed by the Board and non-voting individuals invited by administration, studied district growth; facility and other needs identified by administration, campus leadership, or committee members; and related financial considerations. The FBOC presented its findings to the Board in December 2022, at which time the Board voted to proceed with the development process for a possible bond election to appear on the May 6, 2023 ballot.

    Information About a Potential Hays CISD 2023 Bond

     

    Dear Hays CISD Family,

     

    Our Bond 2023 informational webpage is now live at: www.hayscisd.net/bond2023. The Board of Trustees, following a recommendation this month by the district’s Facilities and Bond Oversight Committee, is considering presenting a bond package to voters on May 6, 2023.

     

    Visit the bond page if you would like to comment to the Board or share an idea. In January, there will also be several in-person public forum opportunities. We’ll lock down the full schedule and publish it online early next month.

     

    The legal deadline for the Board to decide whether to call for a bond election, and what would appear on the May 2023 ballot, is in mid-February. After that, voters would be able to cast ballots for or against any bond measures or propositions. By providing your thoughts now and in January, you can help shape what might be in the bond.

     

    Have a wonderful Christmas and holiday break!

     

    Sincerely,

    Tim Savoy

    Chief Communication Officer
