Proposed Bond Projects

Overview

Bond Projects

On November 6, 2018, the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District (CFBISD) held a bond election for $350 million including renovations and improvements to all campuses, safety and security, Career and Technical Education (CTE) improvements, fine arts improvements, athletic improvements, and technology infrastructure.

The students of Carrollton-Farmers Branch are fortunate that the voters of our community share this passion for quality schools by passing our bond referendum to provide the tools and facilities our students and teachers need to succeed. We appreciate the ongoing support of the CFBISD community and remain committed to making sure these bond funds are spent wisely and efficiently.

There will be no increase to the tax rate as a result of the passing of the 2018 bond. The current overall tax rate is $1.37. The tax rate previously was $1.38 for the 2017-2018 school year. The district has lowered the tax rate 10 of the last 13 years.

Development of the November 2018 bond package involved an in-depth process of information gathering, research and community input by the CFBISD Citizen’s Facility Advisory Committee (CAC). The Board charged the CAC with assessing and prioritizing the district’s current and long-term facility needs and making a recommendation that addresses those needs. The CAC was comprised of 49 members including 39 parents and community members and met six times over a six-month period.
