NBC 5 News

The Richardson Independent School District board of trustees voted Monday to send a $750 million bond program to a public vote in May.

If approved by voters this spring, $694 million will go toward school buildings, buses, and safety, with the other $56 million to be used for technology devices,.

This new bond program comes with the upcoming expiration of the 2016 Bond Program, so no new tax increase would be necessary.

Nearly 70% of Richardson voters approved of the 2016 bond program. That $437 million bond package was used to improve classrooms, building infrastructure and technology.

The district said the 2021 plan is essential for the continued improvement and maintenance of school buildings across the city.
