TYLER, TX (KLTV) - By Mark Randall, President of Tyler Proud
Tyler Proud is a group of parents, grandparents, students, educators and business owners who believe great schools make a great community. Together, we must invest in our future by providing quality public education in Tyler ISD.
Tyler Proud supports the TISD school bond for four important reasons:
- The entire bond will be funded without raising the existing tax rate.
- The campuses in te bond will have increased safety and security features to better protect our children and our teachers.
- There are currently 164 portable classroom trailers across TISD. These new and remodeled campuses will accommodate our current overcrowding and projected growth.
- And finally, Tyler and the East Texas community will benefit from a state-of-the-art Career and Technical Education Center. The CTE Center will teach high school students workforce and college-readiness skills in a real world environment. This Center will support our growing regional workforce needs and provide our students with certifications and college credit.
For more information about the bond, visit our website – www.tylerproud.org. Join us in voting FOR this bond that will benefit 8000 of the over 18,000 students in TISD. Early voting begins April 29 and voting day is May 11.
Remember – a vote FOR the bond is a vote FOR our students, teachers and schools!
The future of Tyler is in TISD!
