Midlothian ISD voters approved a $97.3 million bond proposal to build high
school #2, elementary #7, and an addition to Frank Seale Middle School.
Complete, but *unofficial results, showed that 2,263 people voted for the
bond package, while 1,838 people voted against the bond.
The vote indicates the support of the district's goal to meet existing and future facility
"Today marks the end of a long process. We acknowledge and thank past
and present Growth Management Committees, Midlothian ISD School Board of
Trustees, Community Advocates for Responsible Education (C.A.R.E.), the
wonderful citizens of Midlothian ISD, the district's faculty, staff, and
administrators, and the many others who worked tirelessly and
selflessly," said Dr. Stewart.
"The spirit and dedication of these people has been remarkable."
"I am grateful and pleased," continued Dr. Stewart, "that
our bond issue passed. Our community looked at the information that was
presented and made an informed decision to support its school district and
to build on its excellence, for this day and for the future."
Dr. Stewart concluded, "As one process ends, another process begins:
building the bond projects. The School Board Trustees and I, look forward
to working with the MISD community to build the three bond projects in a
manner of which our community can be proud."
Bond 2011 updates will be available on the MISD Web site.
* Votes will be canvassed on May 19 for the official results.
