Jacksonville ISD Bond information

JACKSONVILLE, October 9, 2013— On November 5, voters will have the chance to vote on a new bond package requested by Jacksonville ISD.

The bond will be used to build a new West Side Elementary school, to replace the 62 year-old current school facility. It will also be used to build eight new classrooms and a band hall at Nichols Intermediate School.

The bond, if approved, will cost residents $5.16 more per month for a family living in the JISD average home. To figure your specific tax amounts, visit the calculator at www.jisd.org.

Senior homesteads will be unaffected by the bond, due to frozen taxes.

Early voting on the issue will take place Oct. 21 – Nov. 1, at the Jacksonville Public Library, from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Early Convenience Voting will take place as follows: Tues, Oct. 22 – West Side Elementary – 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.; Thurs, Oct. 24 – Jacksonville HS – 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.; Sun, Oct., 27 – Jacksonville HS – 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.; Mon, Oct. 28 – Nichols Intermediate – 6:00 – 8:30 pm.; Tues, Oct. 29 – West Side Elementary – 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
