Orangefield Bond 2023

August 21, 2023 - The Orangefield ISD Board of Trustees unanimously approved calling a bond election for November 7, 2023 in the amount of $42.9 million on August 21, 2023.  The bond program will address safety and security upgrades, renovations and additions, and upgrades to aging facilities.  The focus of the bond is centered around classroom additions to provide instructional space for students and to accommodate enrollment growth in the district.

This bond proposal was developed by a committee of Orangefield ISD residents from across the
school district. The Facilities Steering Committee was comprised of approximately approximately 60 parents, staff, community leaders, and residents both new to Orangefield ISD and those who have lived in the district for decades. 

The committee analyzed current enrollment, school capacities, and demographic projections;
studied the state’s school funding process and district financial data; evaluated future facility needs and prioritized projects. Following months of review, discussion, and consideration, the committee presented its final recommendation to the Orangefield ISD Board of Trustees. The board unanimously approved the recommendation and supported calling a bond election.
