Odem-Edroy ISD 2023 Bond Program

Over the past year, the Odem-Edroy ISD Board of Trustees has been thoughtfully and strategically studying facility needs, growth and enrollment projections, school safety, community input, and a recommendation from the OEISD Long-Range Facilities Planning Committee.

The Long-Range Planning Committee met for several months to analyze and study data including a district-wide facilities assessment, demographic projections, safety and security issues, teacher and staff feedback, school finances and community input. The Board moved forward with the committee’s recommendations. With a unanimous vote, the Board called a $15,800,000 bond election to be held on May 6, 2023.

The proposed bond package will focus on safety and security improvements, growth in student enrollment, facility logistics, aging facility conditions, and evolving student programs.
