SISD urging voters to support $448M bond

EL PASO, Texas - District leaders are urging voters tuo support a multi-million dollar bond that would go towards funding several projects including the reconstruction of Socorro High School.

According to the Socorro Independent School District, $135 million would be used for rebuilding parts of Socorro High School which is more than 50 years old.

Additionally, $105 million would pay for three new schools and $67 million would fund a new student activities complex. 

SISD says the projects are needed to accommodate growth and prevent overcrowding. 

If approved, taxes would go up for people living in the district. For example, a person whose home is worth $100,000, would see their taxes increase $8.83 a month.
