In November 2020, Allen ISD voters approved two bond propositions (Propositions A & D), which represented 96.5% of the total $222 in proposals. More than 48,000 community members participated in the vote, an all-time record for an Allen ISD bond election. Thank you to everyone who voted in this important election.
Proposition A ($189.3 million) included updates to safety and security, capital projects, technology infrastructure additions, purchase of new school buses and vehicle maintenance equipment, and campus updates to Boon Elementary, Chandler Elementary, Evans Elementary, Ereckson Middle School, and several wings at Allen High School.
Proposition D ($25 million) included the purchase of wireless technology devices for students and staff, computer desktops for students and staff, and print devices.
Proposition B (turf replacement at several campuses, track resurfacing at several campuses, and an equity update to provide a turf and track at Ford Middle School) and Proposition C (updates and repairs to the Allen High School tennis facility) were not approved by voters.
Recent Bond 2020 Project Updates
On Feb. 4, 2021, Allen ISD closed on the sale of $125 million of the $214.3 million approved by voters. AISD secured a 2.302% True Interest Cost rate (a historical low for the district), which results in an overall interest payment savings for our taxpayers over the lifespan of the bonds. The district also maintained its excellent ‘Aa2’ (Moody’s) and ‘AA’ (S&P) Ratings to go along with ‘Aaa’/’AAA’ PSF Guarantee Ratings. The $125 million will fund portions of both Propositions A and D from the 2020 election.
The Board of Trustees approved the following Construction Managers at Risk during its December 2020 meeting:
- Allen High School Academic G-Wing: Joeris General Contractors, LTD
- Boon Elementary School: Balfour Beatty Construction
Allen ISD staff will continue to work with the campus staff, construction firms, and architects to provide a smooth planning and implementation process. Both projects are scheduled to begin in the Summer of 2021.
