The New Caney ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Tuesday, Feb. 7, to call for a bond election for May 6, 2023. The Board is asking voters to consider two propositions to fund new school construction and facility improvements as well as land acquisition for future schools and facilities.
A bond proposal was presented to the Board by a bond steering committee that consisted of New Caney ISD parents, staff, and community members. The committee met three times during November, December, and January to review the district’s recent demographic reports, enrollment projections, student program considerations, and financial outlook.
New Caney ISD commissioned a demographic study that was completed in 2022. Population and Survey Analysts (PASA) conducted the study and presented its findings to the Board of Trustees in April 2022. The report presents low, moderate, and high growth scenarios. The moderate scenario projects nearly 4% annual enrollment growth over the next 10 years or an average growth of 790 students each year during that time. The report predicts district enrollment to grow from 18,300 in 2023 to approximately 25,000 students by 2031 with moderate growth.
