Tonight, the Friendswood ISD taxpayers approved a $128 million bond that will improve the educational experience of all of our students, staff and community. Thank you to the voters of Friendswood for supporting both the school bond and the technology proposition. We all recognize that voting to approve bonds is not taken lightly. We sincerely thank all those who helped to research and design a plan that would address the most pressing needs of the District and be approved by the voters.
We recognize that our voters have agreed to these taxes with the expectation that the money will be well and carefully spent, and we will meet that expectation.
We also recognize that the bonds are an investment in the future of our students and our community. The work that we do on our buildings will result in well planned and carefully built spaces that will serve Friendswood ISD students and the community for many years. Our technology purchases will help our students obtain an excellent education so that they continue to have many options for success in their future.
We welcome community members to be a part of the next phases of the process of redesigning our buildings. As we move ahead with the bond project over the next few months, there will be meetings and discussion opportunities for community members to attend and join in the work.
On behalf of the students and staff, I thank you for your support and commitment to Friendswood schools. #TogetherWeAreMighty #FriendswoodForw>rd
