AUSTIN (KXAN) — Voters within Del Valle ISD voted to approve a $300 million bond to buy land for future school facilities and build a second high school for the district.
The bond passed with nearly 65% of the vote.
This proposition is based on advice from the district’s Growth Advisory Committee.
Del Valle High School’s enrollment is approximately 3,500 students. The district is expected to grow by about 500 students per year. About 4,000 students will attend the high school in five years, according to the district’s website.
According to the district, the bond isn’t expected to raise Del Valle ISD’s property tax rate.
