The Rochelle Independent School District has called a bond election for May 4, 2024. The bond election aims to address renovations to both the elementary school and the ag shop as well as updates to the gymnasium, HVAC systems and general repairs. Additional buses will be purchased to add to the fleet.

The Rochelle ISD community has spent several months collecting data, evaluating options, and deriving plans to address the needs of our campus and put this bond package together. This bond package is the product of many meetings over the course of several months to study and prioritize the needs of our school district. This has been part of a process the district administration began over a year ago that included countless hours of programming meetings, facility and growth studies, as well as gathering community input.

The district’s financial advisor has determined that there would be a 24 cent tax rate impact to finance $6.75 million in bonds. More information on the District’s website will be forthcoming, including a tax-impact calculator to help property owners see and understand how the bond will impact them.

Rochelle ISD encourages all eligible voters to participate in the upcoming bond election on May 4, 2024, and have their voices heard. The deadline to register is Thursday, April 4. Early voting begins Monday, April 22, and runs through Tuesday, April 30. The district will host a town hall meeting on March 19th at 6:30PM at the Rochelle ISD Cafeteria. Additional town hall meetings will be held on April 1st at 6:30PM at the Mercury Community Center and also on April 23rd at 6:30PM at the Rochelle ISD Cafeteria.
