Above information is from the BISD School Construction Bond Referendum brochure. Because of the high levels of growth in our area, this bond package is needed because the BISD high school student enrollment is expected to reach 3,353 by 2010. This is almost 1,300 more students then are enrolled today. For more information, please contact the Communications and Community Relations Department at 321-2292.------------Neil R. Gurwitz
