The E.P.I.S.D. Board of Trustees will be talking about their proposed 668 million dollar bond at their regular meeting this afternoon. The board was given the final bond recommendation by the district’s facilities action committee last week.

If it is put before voters as proposed, it would be the largest bond amount ever put on a ballot in El Paso. The more than half a billion dollar bond seems huge, but the 80 citizens, soldiers, teachers and students who made up the facilities advisory committee say that is how much is needed to make the district better for future students.

If voters say yes to the bond, you could be paying an additional $200 a year in EPISD property taxes.

The money from the bond would, among other things, rebuild Burges and Coronado high schools, renovate Jefferson/Silva High School, improve athletic facilities and ramp up technology, security and transportation throughout the district.
