Dear Midlothian ISD Resident:

On February 13, 2023, the Midlothian ISD School Board voted to seek voter approval for a $415,944,300 bond issue. This process has been a community effort over the last year with involvement from over 135 volunteers and over 1,000 hours of planning. The Committee included citizens, city leaders, both current and past board members, teachers, parents, and students. The Committee dedicated several months to data collection, evaluations, and planning to put this bond package together. This plan includes: district-wide safety and security improvements, new construction, renovations, and additions.

The district’s financial advisor has determined that there would be a school tax rate impact to finance this bond. This will include an impact to the district’s I&S tax rate of 2.61 cents per $100 valuation. Projects will be funded based on new valuations and growth within the district. The district’s 2023 bond package includes:
