College Station voters showed their support for the school district's $136 million bond package Tuesday, casting more than 70 percent of the votes in favor of the proposal.
"[College Station voters] know the value of education," College Station Superintendent Clark Ealy said. "Whether you have a child or you don't, the community is improved when we have an educated citizenry, when we have an educated populace [and] when we have kids that come out of College Station ISD who can compete locally, nationally and internationally."
School board Secretary Jeff Harris said that the next step for the bond will be for the district to identify which projects to prioritize and to begin the process of determining who it will partner with to make the projects a reality.
The bond package includes three new campuses -- a middle school, an intermediate school and an elementary school -- various additions and renovations to existing campuses and funds to purchase new land for future facilities.
Of those who cast a ballot and were eligible to vote in the bond election, only four percent did not make a selection.
