    In a unanimous vote June 20, the Lake Travis school board approved an order calling a $253 million bond election for November 7, 2017.Vote!

    Last month, a citizens’ advisory committee presented its proposal to the board, calling for district-wide capital improvements to accommodate the district’s continued increase in student enrollment. According to demographer Population and Survey Analysts (PASA), student enrollment at Lake Travis ISD has increased by approximately 76% since 2007. Considering a moderate growth rate scenario, projections indicate a continued increase of more than 60% during the next 10 years, resulting in a district-wide enrollment of nearly 16,000 students.

    The major components of the district’s 2017 bond program include the following:

    • Middle School #3
    • Elementary School #7
    • Upgrades, renovations, and repairs to existing facilities
    • School buses, including installation of seat belts
    • Technology
    • Land for future facilities and utilities
