Bryan School Board Is Told A $140 Million Dollar Bond Issue Next May Would Require No Tax Rate Increase

Bryan school board members are told they could ask voters next May to approve a bond issue of up to 140 million dollars without raising the tax rate.

The superintendent’s chief of staff, Ginger Carrabine provided an update Monday, following the fifth meeting of a bond oversight committee.

One of the possible projects is building a third intermediate school on the site of Bryan ISD’s transportation and maintenance centers and moving those functions to a new location.

Carrabine says there is enough land at the present transportation and maintenance center for the school, and its location is conducive for a third fifth and sixth grade campus.

Superintendent Christie Whitbeck says in a survey last year, this was the top priority of community members. She also says capacities at Sam Rayburn and Jane Long are reaching capacity, even after recent additions to those buildings.

Carrabine says they have outgrown the maintenance center and warehouse, which were built in 1974.
