Voters Approve FISD, County Bonds
This week, voters living within the Forney Independent School District made a monumental decision in favor of its students. Looking forward to the unprecedented growth trend expected to continue inside the district, citizens voted to approve the $623 million bond package allowing for a variety of renovations to existing buildings, as well as the construction of a number of new school facilities. According to the unofficial results available at the time of press, there were 2,646 ballots cast in early voting. With 2,031 votes, that is 77% of the ballots, the voters’ voices were heard loud and clear.
Forney ISD Superintendent, Dr. Justin Terry, is thankful the voters backed this bond package, recommended by the Innovative School Facilities Planning Committee and unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees to appear on the ballot. “We are extremely appreciative of the support our community has shown to our students and staff with the unofficial results of our bond election. They are ensuring a bright future for all of our current and new Forney families to come,” Forney ISD Superintendent Dr. Justin Terry said. “I value the confidence that our voters and community have placed in our school system. The District will continue to act as good stewards of the community’s investment in our schools and provide innovative educational opportunities to prepare each student for a successful future.”
