Voters Support Lamar CISD Bond Referendum

The recent election resulted in a $1.5 billion win for Lamar CISD schools — including those zoned to Veranda — as voters supported the largest bond referendum in the district’s history.

Propositions A, B and C passed ensuring funding for projects that will aid the fast-growing district as it prepares for an influx of new students over the next decade.

Proposition A provides more than $1.3 billion to build four new elementary schools, two middle schools, a new junior high and a new high school. The bond also will fund land purchases, new portable buildings, new buses, technology infrastructure, upgrades to safety and security and improvements to four high schools.

A new Career and Technology Center will be funded to the tune of $189 million. The new center will provide additional labs for the more than 15,000 students in Lamar CISD that are currently enrolled in CTE Courses.

At $16.7 million, Proposition C funds upgrades to classroom and district technology including new student and staff laptops, iPads, interactive classroom technology and equipment for the Lamar CISD graphic design center.

Lamar CISD is the fastest-growing school district in Texas. Currently serving more than 36,000 students, Lamar CISD is expected to reach enrollment of more than 70,000 students during the next decade.

We thank everyone who came out to support our district!
