Dumas ISD Propose $ 107 Million Bond For Improvements
The Dumas Independent School District Board of Trustees unanimously voted to add to the November 5 election ballot a $107 million bond referendum.
The Dumas ISD Facility Advisory Committee which is made up of 36 parents, grandparents, graduates, staff, business owners, elected officials, ministers, and community members volunteered and donated more than 820 hours to examine needs and develop a plan for the district recommended the bond proposal.
Proposed projects include:
The construction of three new energy-efficient replacement elementary schools with storm shelters,
A new CTE building to expand the current welding and building trades programs,
Secure entryways at Dumas Junior High and Dumas High School,
The renovation and expansion of our Band and Choir building at the High School,
Kitchen remodels at Dumas High and Junior high schools and projects to address energy efficiencies such as a district-wide energy management system, HVAC replacements and LED lighting replacements at all district facilities.
If voters approve the bond in November, the financial impact to taxpayers will be $27 per month on a $94,000 home. Citizens that are 65 years of age and older would not be impacted if they have filed for and received a homestead exemption with the state of Texas
