Deer Park School District Seeking $5.5 Million Bond To Remodel Schools

The Deer Park School District will seek a $5.5 million bond in the May 16 election to completely remodel two schools and rewire two others for computer networks.

On Monday the citizens’ bond committee will hold a meeting to kick off the campaign. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at the Deer Park Civic Center.

Members of the committee will be available to answer questions and discuss the bond. If the bond passes, the state will kick in matching funds toward the $10.7 million needed to complete the work.

“The previous two or three bonds failed,” advisory board leader Kip Nedved said. “But we’ve tried to make this bond more conservative and focus on the buildings that really do need the work now.”
