The New Braunfels ISD voters passed the $62.8 million bond referendum held on November 3, 2015. The majority of the bond program is to build two new elementary schools for growth with additional funds to address facility, safety and compliance needs of the district’s existing facilities.


The election drew 70.5 percent in favor and 29.5 percent against the bond proposition. A total of 2,906 voters were in favor of the bond and 1,218 against. A total of 4,152 ballots were cast or 13.4 percent of the 30,911 registered voters.


“This bond was recommended based on the immediate needs of the district with regards to current and projected growth and the age and condition of our facilities,” said Randy Moczygemba, NBISD superintendent of schools. “We are grateful for the support of the community and for their confidence in our recommendations for this bond program.”


NBISD’s plans to get started right away on some of the bond projects to make sure they are ready on time and on budget, Moczygemba added.


The official language on the bond referendum ballot was:

“The issuance of up to $62,800,000 of New Braunfels Independent School District Building Bonds for the purposes of acquiring, designing, renovating, constructing, and equipping school facilities and the purchase of necessary sites for school facilities, and the levying of a tax in payment thereof.”


The unofficial canvass report showed 1,819 voters cast ballots during early voting or by absentee ballot. This equates to a 5.9 percent voter turnout. Early ballots cast resulted in 1,270 votes for the bond and 549 against, or 69.8 percent for and 30.2 percent against.

The last NBISD bond election was held in November 2010 for $45.3 million and was approved by voters with 75 percent in favor.
