The Burnet Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call for a bond election on November 5, 2019.  The election is for one proposition totaling $33.1 million.

The proposed bond will:

  • Address student learning environments and growth, especially at Bertram Elementary
  • Improve safety and security
  • Improve the District’s operational efficiency

Burnet Consolidated Independent School District, like all public schools in Texas, relies on the support of local taxpayers to fund the construction and improvement of school facilities.

Similar to homeowners borrowing money in the form of a mortgage to finance the purchase of a home, a school district borrows money in the form of bonds to finance the design, construction, expansion, and renovations of schools and district facilities.

 

 

 

 

Bonds are approved by voters in a bond election then sold to investors in the competitive investment market.
