The Judson ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call for a $302.5 million bond election with three separate propositions to appear on the November 2, 2021 ballot. Taxpayers will not see a tax increase from this bond.
The decision to move forward with this bond came from the work of the district Growth & Planning Committee which was comprised of 43 teachers, parents, administrators, and community members. This group developed a bond proposal by evaluating facility and technology needs assessments, researching innovative and flexible learning spaces and programs for our students, and discussing feedback and ideas from the community. The committee was focused on creating opportunities and choice, addressing the current and future needs of the district, and following the Board Priorities.
- Foster 21st Century Skills: Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication
- Enable teachers to be the best possible facilitators of learning
- Ensure facilities are equitable throughout the district
- Dream big: do not limit ourselves
All Judson ISD schools will benefit from this bond.

Growth, Building Upgrades & Program Enhancements- $252.3 million
Every school in Judson ISD will be receiving improvements as a result of Proposition A. These improvements are intended to address student safety, health, and academic achievement. The improvements at each campus vary based on the school’s age, condition, and academic programs.
Athletic Upgrades and Improvements for Secondary Campuses- $14.9 million
This proposition will fund items related to playfields on secondary campuses. Improvements to football fields, tennis courts, and tracks will be addressed.
Technology Advancements throughout the District- $35.3 million
Judson ISD students and teachers have never relied on technology more than they do today. Continuing to provide up-to-date, hands-on technology devices for students of all ages is a key component of this effort. Improvements to the district-wide wireless infrastructure will support the increasing demand placed on the network utilized in classrooms and labs every day.
