El Paso ISD Bond Passes

11.28.2016 — It looked like a long shot. When the El Paso Independent School District put a $669-million bond proposal on the November ballot, many thought it would go down to defeat because of its sheer size, the active opposition and lingering doubts about the district’s trustworthiness after the scandals of the past.

But when the votes were counted on Nov. 8, El Paso voters approved the community’s biggest bond ever by almost 9,000 votes – 45,480 to 36,906.
