Cumby ISD Board of Trustees are again considering calling a bond election to fund improvements at the school.
Cumby ISD voters were asked during the Nov. 5, 2019 election to consider approving a school bond. In the early ballots, 60 percent of voters were in favor of the bond for school improvements and 40 percent voted against it. However, once Election Day totals were in, the bond was defeated by only 10 votes.
Trustees and administrators have again been discussing the idea and plan to host a community meeting at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 30 in Cumby Elementary cafeteria for community members and stakeholders. A roundtable discussion will be conducted. Topics to be discussed include the Cumby ISD master planning and a potential May 2021 bond election.
There also is Zoom link for those who are unable to be at the Jan. 30 meeting or who choose to watch online in order to better observe social distancing.
The Zoom link is available on the school website, www.cumbyisd.net or by clicking here: http://us02web.zoom.us/j/83190556717
The last day to file for a bond election is Feb. 12. Cumby ISD trustees plan to consider discussion at the Jan. 30 community meeting, and make a decision by the deadline.
