Brock voters approved the $21.36 million bond election for Brock ISD by 691 votes, or 54.45 percent of the vote, during Tuesday’s election.
The bond election will fund new security enhancements, school buses, more classrooms at the high school and junior high school, technology upgrades, an agriculture building lab for welding and fabrication and a junior high gymnasium. There will be no tax rate increase with the bond, and the district lowered the overall tax rate by 12 cents.
“Growth within our school district led us to a bond and our community has responded in favor of expanding our facilities to meet the needs of this growth,” Brock ISD Superintendent Cade Smith said. “We could not be more humbled of the faith and support our community continues to show regarding the direction of our district.”
