New Braunfels ISD taxpayers approved two of the three propositions listed under the 2021 Bond that went before voters on November 2. These two propositions total $327.9 million in projects to address growth, aging facilities, athletic upgrades (excluding stadiums) and technology. 

“This was a comprehensive bond that will positively impact every student. The projects that are being funded include schools and facilities that will be utilized by generations to come,” said Dr. Cade Smith, NBISD superintendent of schools. “We are very grateful to the community members that put this bond together and for those that came out to participate in the voting process” 

Under Proposition “A” totaling $321,300,000, the election drew an estimated 61 percent in favor and 39 percent against the bond proposition. A total of 3,204 voters were in favor of the bond and 2,028 against. 

Under Proposition “C” totaling $6.6 million for districtwide technology, an estimated 59 percent of the voters cast a ballot in favor and 41 percent against. A total of 3,061 voters voted in favor and 2,157 against. 

The total bond presented to voters was $348 million and also included a separate proposition - Proposition B - for a varsity competition stadium at the future Long Creek High School and upgrades to the existing New Braunfels High School press box. This particular proposition did not gain voter approval with an estimated 54 percent voting against.
