TISD bond wins with 62.7 percent of vote

TYLER (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - The Tyler school district's $160.5 million bond proposal Saturday captured 62.7 percent of the vote, with all precincts counted.

There were 5,459 votes, or 62.7 percent, for, with 3,250, or 37.3 percent, against.

The bond will pay for renovated facilities for Rice and Dixie elementary schools, a new middle school in the southwest corner of Tyler, new buildings for Boulter and Moore middle schools and a new technical and career education center drawing students from Robert E. Lee and John Tyler high schools.

Bond approval also paves the way to turn Stewart Middle School into an academy that would serve high schoolers working at their own pace.
