Bond Proposal Includes Safety Updates at Every School + Renovations across CFBISD

The $716.4 million referendum would generate funding for state-mandated safety and security updates, replacement schools for three of the district’s oldest elementary schools, renovations to special education classrooms and support spaces, updates for early childhood education, and more.
