Temple ISD to host Bond 2021 neighborhood presentations

TEMPLE, Texas — The Temple Independent School District will be hosting a series of Bond 2021 neighborhood presentations on each of the district’s 13 main campuses over the months of September and October. The series opens with a presentation at Bonham Middle School on Thursday, September 9, at 6 p.m.

Dr. Bobby Ott, the superintendent of schools for Temple Independent School District, will present an overview of the final called bond proposal that will appear on the ballot in the November election. The public is invited to attend any of the presentations, regardless of which school attendance zone in which they live.

“Throughout the bond process our goal has been to be transparent, inclusive, and keep our community informed,” said Dan Posey, president of the Temple ISD board of trustees. “These neighborhood presentations are another way for us to ensure that these things happen. I encourage all community members to attend one of these neighborhood presentations about the proposed bond package that prioritizes the needs of the district in terms of growth, facility improvements, safety and security, and equity in programs.”
