“I want to thank the College Station community for showing up at the polls and exercising their right to vote in this election,” said Dr. Tim Harkrider, superintendent of schools. “I’m grateful for the long-range planning committee and hours of work they put in to provide a comprehensive package to the voters, and for the district staff and community members who led and facilitated bond public presentations. We look forward to getting to work on the approved projects and continuing to provide opportunities for students to succeed.”

A 48-member long-range planning committee met regularly to evaluate and assess current and future needs of CSISD, while developing a recommendation that:

  • considered the educational needs of students;
  • provided a solution for the facility, technology and transportation needs brought on by the district’s growth;
  • ensured support for a quality education for all students;
  • reflected community values and perceptions of needs; and
  • remained fiscally sound.

On May 16, 2023, committee members presented its recommendation for a $350,865,000 to the Board of Trustees, who discussed the proposed projects in open meetings on May 16, June 20, July 18, and Aug. 15, before officially calling for the bond package to be placed on the ballot for the Nov. 7 election. 

Official results from Tuesday’s election will be canvassed and announced during the Nov. 15 Board of Trustees workshop.
