Royse City (Texas) district puts $863 million bond package on May ballot

Jan. 20, 2023
The bonds would enable the district to build a high school, a middle school, and 3 elementary schools, and other facilities upgrades.

Voters in the Royse City (Texas) Independent School District will cast ballots in May to decide on an $863 million bond package that would pay for several new campuses, including a high school, a middle school and three new elementaries.

The Royse City Herald-Banner reports that the May 6 referendum will consist of two propositions. 

Proposition A covers the lion's share of the proposed package--$849.8 million--and would provide money for a second district high school; the David and Shirley Magness Middle School; three elementary schools; an early childhood center; renovations and expansions to Royse City High School; a new Epps Education Service Center; a transportation center; a distribution center, security improvements; technology infrastructure and fixtures; and land for future district sites.

Proposition B asks for about $13.2 million to build a home locker room for the second high school at the district stadium as well as additional restrooms and parking at the stadium.
