Another San Antonio School Bond

I talked with a member or the Northside Independent School District (NISD) last night. Apparently they are not waiting for another failed special session, general session, and Texas Supreme Court ruling, so they are gearing up to score another education bond for San Antonio.

The bond will be based on a citizen’s commission on education reform and will likely be around $500 million for infrastructure restoration, reverse metering, a new school to lower classroom size, and technology improvements.

This is a three year process and will be probably put on the May 2009 ballot, but it is interesting to see a school board that has so little faith in the legislature that they are planning this far in advance.
