The Granger ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call a $44 million bond election to be held on May 7, 2022, at the February board meeting. The Board’s decision came after a recommendation was made by the District’s Facilities Planning Committee to address growth, aging facilities, and additional facility needs.
The district saw a growth rate of 13.1% this year. Our total elementary and secondary campus capacity is under 600 students, and we currently have 512 students enrolled. Granger ISD is expected to have at least 650 students within the next few years and more than 853 students in 2031-32. Within 10 years, we anticipate Granger ISD will double its student population.
Over the past four months the Facilities Planning Committee (FPC), comprised of parents, non-parents, campus staff, community members and stakeholders from across the district, met to study and prioritize the needs of the District before presenting their recommendation to the Board of Trustees on January 19, 2022. The Board’s decision affirms the recommendation made by the FPC. The Granger ISD Board of Trustees and I are so grateful for the volunteers who served on the FPC.
They worked diligently to analyze each project and develop a recommendation that they felt would meet the needs of students while continuing to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars. Thank you to the following people for your work on the FPC:
