The last chance for neighbors to make comments or ask questions about the Dallas ISD 2020 bond is Tuesday, when the district hosts its final virtual town hall.

At the meeting, Superintendent Michael Hinojosa will update parents on projects included in the bond, and Chief Financial Officer Dwayne Thompson will share highlights of the 2020-2021 budget.

If voters approve the bond in November, the district could acquire up to $3.7 million in funds to spend on building improvements, replacement campuses, technology needs, indoor athletic facilities, security improvements and more.

It would be the largest school district bond in state history.

The bond includes proposals to tear down and rebuild Geneva Heights Elementary in the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, as well as Martha Turner Reilly Elementary and Victor H. Hexter Elementary in the Bryan Adams feeder pattern.

The school board will vote on the bond in August. If five trustees approve, it will go before voters in November. However, some have argued it should be postponed until 2022 because of the coronavirus. The delay will allow for higher voter turnout and allow district officials to access needs after the crisis.
