The Board of Directors of the West Houston Association voted to endorse the Katy Independent School District’s $748 million bond election scheduled for a vote November 4, 2014.
“The Katy Independent School District is the driving force behind the unmatched quality of life enjoyed by residents in western Harris, northern Fort Bend and Waller Counties,” says Perri D’Armond, president and chief executive officer of the West Houston Association. “West Houston has experienced phenomenal growth in recent years in both population growth and economic growth. With that growth comes pressure for the District to uphold its standards of quality. The proposed bonds that will be authorized by voters in this election will help the District maintain and improve the quality of education it offers the children in the West Houston area,” she said.
Katy ISD is proposing the issuance of $748.1 million in bonds for new schools, campus renovations and modifications, facility expansions, technology, safety and student activity facilities. This will help Katy ISD address the needs of the current student enrollment and help it prepare for the additional 3,000 new students arriving every year.
The West Houston Association Board of Directors has passed a resolution in support of the Katy ISD 2014 Bond, and encourages all of our members to vote FOR the bond on November 4th.
