The Carthage ISD Bond Election was held yesterday and both propositions passed. Thank you to those who exercised their right to vote.
The bond election was for $12 million, and the election was broken into two propositions. Proposition A is for $9 million, and funds would be dedicated to routine maintenance, transportation expenses, and preventive maintenance. Proposition B is for $3 million and would be dedicated to technology for school purposes such as Chromebooks, computers, and associated software and hardware.
While the ballot stated, "This is a tax increase", as mandated by State law, it is the District’s expectation that there will be no increase to the tax rate. Since 2018, the District has lowered the tax rate by over $0.08 per $100 valuation.
