TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Tyler ISD School Board has just over two months to convince voters to approve a new $89,850,000 bond.
The board voted unanimously Monday night to put the bond on the November 2nd ballot.
If passed, the bond will pay for the construction of three new schools: Dixie Elementary will be rebuilt at a cost of $20,190,000, Rice Elementary would be rebuilt at a cost of $23,850,000, and $44,000,000 would pay for a brand new middle school in southwest Tyler, just off of Old Jacksonville Highway.
The district has already purchased 30 acres of land for the new school. If it's approved, that school will have a target opening of August 2012. The board said that this bond will not affect tax rates at all.
