Comal ISD 2023 Bond Proposal
The Comal ISD Board of Trustees has approved a bond package that will address continued enrollment growth as well as items such as campus safety and security, student technology, and expansions and improvements at existing campuses. The bond referendum, which will be on the May 6 ballot, will appear as three separate propositions.

Comal ISD residents will have the opportunity to vote in the bond election on Saturday, May 6, 2023. Early voting begins April 24 and runs through May 2

Prop A
Growth & Reinvestment - $560,564,863

Proposition A will address continued district growth in the way of three new elementary schools to provide capacity relief to Bill Brown, Johnson Ranch, Oak Creek and Freiheit Elementary Schools, and a new middle school to relieve Canyon Middle School. Also funded by Proposition A is a new Life Bridges campus, a program designed to educate young adults with disabilities to increase independence in family and community settings. 

In addition, more than $17 million of the proposition will fund safety and security projects throughout the district. Other projects funded from Proposition A include capital projects at existing campuses that support student programs, facility infrastructure projects such as roofs and HVAC systems to maintain the operational integrity of the campuses, buses to replace aging units, and land for future schools.

Prop B
Stadiums Projects - $46,094,984

Proposition B will address stadium safety improvements at Canyon Lake High School. The current stadium bleacher configuration only has one exit point, creating an issue when there is a need to evacuate spectators due to lighting or other emergencies. New bleachers will have multiple exit points making evacuations safer. 

The other project funded by Proposition B is a bleacher expansion and fieldhouse at Davenport High School. The campus, which has seen higher than expected enrollment since it opened in 2020, was designed to have the fieldhouse added as student participation in the various programs grew at Davenport. With the addition of the fieldhouse, space currently being utilized inside the main building for athletics will be freed for non-athletic use, such as ROTC and academic classes.

  • Bleacher replacement for safety: CLHS
  • Bleacher expansion and field house: DHS
Prop C
Student Technology & Infrastructure - $28,000,000

Proposition C will fund the purchase of student learning devices, classroom audiovisual equipment, Wi-Fi expansion, and Wide Area Network (WAN) infrastructure across the district.
