    In the fall of 2019, a Citizens Advisory Task Force, made up of 59 community members studied, analyzed, and weighed the current and future needs of the district. Based on the committee’s recommendations, the Bastrop ISD Board of Trustees called for a $140,159,000 bond election to be held on May 2, 2020. The proposed bond has no tax rate increase and includes projects for all campuses, including building a new elementary school. Other projects address safety and security, growth in enrollment and instructional program capacity, district-wide renovations and improvements, and special purpose facilities. As required by law, the bond will be presented on the ballot as two propositions.
