Southside ISD rescinds May bond election

School board president said 2017 bond election is planned


SAN ANTONIO – The Southside ISD bond election that had been called for May has now been rescinded.

The board voted Monday night not to go through with $20.9 million bond election.

School board members called for the election last month. However, they determined it needed at least another year to plan.

The bond would have paid for improvements throughout the district.

"I have to admit that I made a mistake when I first voted for it," said Julian Gonzales, Southside ISD School Board president. "Because, everything that had been set in place right now rushing into having it ready for May 7, it was not in place."

The board also voted to wait to hire an architect for its master plan.

Gonzales said they will still move forward with the planning for a future bond election and everything that's been done so far will be incorporated.
