How was the 2023 bond proposal developed?
The 2023 Waxahachie ISD Bond Proposal was developed by a committee of approximately 70 WISD stakeholders who gathered for a total of eight meetings from February 2022 to December 2022. The committee was composed of representatives with various perspectives, including parents, students, staff members, grandparents, business leaders, civic leaders, volunteers, retirees, community members, and WISD alumni. The committee spent their time reviewing and analyzing the aspects, histories, and projections of Waxahachie ISD’s demographics, growth and enrollment patterns, tax impact scenarios, district finance, educational programs, and thorough discussions of both immediate and long-term needs of the District, and workforce needs for our growing business community. As a result of this process, the committee formed a recommendation for a bond proposal that was presented to the Waxahachie ISD Board of Trustees on December 12, 2022. The WISD Board of Trustees considered the recommendation and called for the bond proposal on February 13, 2023.
