From The Desk of Rick DeMasters

Greetings Bobcat Nation:

We are about to embark on an exciting time for the Celina Independent School District! After many months of research, meetings, and reviewing data collected from Templeton Demographics, Claycomb Associates Architects, NorthStar Builders and the SAMCO Financial Group, the members of the Celina ISD Bond Steering Committee brought forth their recommendation for consideration to call for a bond election.

The recommendation was made to the Trustees during the January School Board meeting. Our Trustees were asked to approve an order calling for a bond election to be held by the Celina Independent School District on May 4, 2019. Our Celina ISD Board of Trustees unanimously cast their votes in favor of a bond in the amount of $600 million that will address student enrollment growth. Also approved with the bond package is an added inflation rate percentage. Due to the fact that the projects listed in the bond package will not be completed at the same time, the approval of an inflation rate percentage is added to the project budget predictions based upon their future start dates.

Over the next few weeks, the district will be forming committees that will be responsible for distributing the Celina Bond information to our voters. The “Frequently Asked Questions” page was created for members of our Bond Steering Committee to aid in answering questions pertaining to the upcoming bond election. More information can also be found on our website at http://www.celinaisd.com and will be updated frequently as we approach election day. If you are not registered to vote, you have until Thursday, April 4th to register to participate in the upcoming election. Early voting will be held from Monday, April 22nd through Tuesday, April 30th and will be located at the Celina ISD Administration Building, located at 205 S. Colorado Street.
