Statement Regarding 2018 Bond Referendum

May 14, 2018

Statement from Dr. Dethloff:

Thank you to everyone who took time to be informed about San Angelo ISD’s bond and who exercised their right to vote in the May 5th Election. The election results are finalized and the 2018 San Angelo ISD Bond Referendum did not pass. 

Fortunately, we have the privilege of participating in local decisions through an election process, and I’m pleased to see community members participating in that right and privilege. The one key takeaway for all of our community, regardless of your position on the bond proposal, is that your vote truly counts.  We honor the voice of our community and the election results illustrate that there is still work and additional facility planning needed by the school district.  Local elections matter, and locally is where our voices are heard and our vote makes a tremendous impact.  

I would like to acknowledge the hard work of our long-range planning committee for putting together a package that truly prioritized and planned for the needs of our students and staff.  Also, I want to thank our school board members for their tireless pursuit in providing our community’s children with quality educational facilities and academic programs. We will continue our journey and do everything in our power to ensure our children are receiving a quality educational experience.
