Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated ISD’s total bond package of $19,800,000 passed on Tuesday, Nov. 7. Proposition A was approved by a vote of 833 to 748, and Proposition B was approved 837 to 728, according to preliminary results. The final results will be made official when the COCISD Board of Trustees has canvassed the votes on Nov. 20.
“The Board and I appreciate each and every voter who participated in this election,” Superintendent Leland Moore said. “The process of this venture has really just begun, and it will be a transparent process. We welcome anyone with questions to contact my office directly.”
Moore and the Board will now begin to lay the groundwork for selling the bonds as quickly as possible in order to get the best possible interest rate. Construction will begin at all district campuses this summer, as soon as school releases for the break.
“We want to thank our community and every one of the people who made the passing of this bond possible,” Moore said. “This is a great outcome for COCISD, and most importantly, it’s a great outcome for our kids.”
