Robinson ISD to hold another bond meeting Thursday

Robinson, Tx — Another meeting will be held later this week to discuss Robinson ISD's $21 million bond proposal.
On Thursday, Robinson ISD Superintendent Dr. Michael Hope and the rest of the board will continue to inform residents of the November 5 vote to fund the building of a new intermediate school.
The current school sits in the original Robinson High School building originally built in 1963.
If passed, the new intermediate school will still house 4th and 5th graders, but will also add 6th graders to its new campus.
Hope said the district has made great use of its buildings and resources in the past, but a new building would serve the community well.
“We just want to make sure residents have all the information so they can make the best decision for their family because this is a personal decision," said Hope. "We want to make sure we continue to have a great school system for our community. We want our kids to be able to do the things they want to do later on in life. And, this school would be a building block for that.”
The new tax would cost a family living in a $100,000 home roughly $270 for six years.
But, for Robinson's senior citizens, their tax rate would be fixed where it remains today.
