WOCCISD $72M Bond Up for Approval in May Elections

in Schools

In the Fall semester of 2023, the West Orange-Cove CISD Board of Trustees and Dr. Harris convened a Facilities Advisory Committee to evaluate the district’s existing facilities.

After several meetings, the committee made a recommendation to the board, which the board accepted and called for a May 2024 bond election. If approved, a $72 million bond will fund a new North Early Learning Center, which was built in 1964.

Additional projects to be covered with bond funds include upgrades to safety/security, technology, HVAC, and restrooms for students and staff, as well as buses.

Because of the District’s tax base and valuation, this bond WILL NOT raise the Tax Rate. However, state law now requires every school district to include the statement “This is a Property
Tax Increase” on the ballot, regardless of the actual impact on the district’s tax rate.
