UPDATE: Voters approve BOTH Bullard Bond 2022 Propositions A and B
Bullard ISD Families and Community,
On behalf of the Bullard ISD Board of Trustees, students, faculty, and staff, I would like to thank our community for supporting the bond program and the future of Bullard ISD. Both propositions of the bond program have been passed by our community with strong support.
This bond program would not have been possible without a dedicated group of parents, staff, and community leaders that made up our Facility Advisory Committee. Thank you for your commitment to planning and preparing Bullard ISD for the future. Also, a very special thank you to the many community members that helped spread the facts concerning this bond and its need.
Finally, I would like to thank the entire Bullard ISD community for their consistent support of our schools. It is because of your support that our school district regularly celebrates success, and that success continues to drive families to want their children to attend Bullard ISD. As a school district, we take great pride in our community and the support that we receive. This is only the beginning of much work ahead, and we look forward to partnering with the Bullard ISD community as we move forward.
Full election results are available on the Smith County Elections Department website.
Dr. Jack Lee
Superintendent of Schools
Following a recommendation from the district’s Facility Advisory Committee, the Bullard ISD Board of Trustees unanimously called a bond election for May 7. Bullard Bond 2022 asks voters to consider two propositions that address current district facilities, campus capacities, and projected growth in enrollment.
On their ballots, Bullard ISD voters will see Proposition A for $82 million and Proposition B for $21 million. If both propositions pass, district homeowners would see a school tax increase of approximately $4.79 a month (based on a $100,000 home and the projected passage of a new $40,000 homestead exemption). However, there will be no tax increase for taxpayers 65 years of age and older who have applied for and received the “age 65 freeze of school homestead taxes.”
