TYLER, Texas (KETK) – A nearly $90 million bond for Tyler ISD passed on May 7.

The bond passed with 64% of votes. It provisioned for two major projects: $63 million to rebuild Hubbard Middle School and $26 million to create a campus for an early college high school.

“On behalf of the Tyler ISD Board of Trustees, staff, and students, thank you for your support in passing this bond election,” Tyler ISD Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford said. “As we continue the academic work and focus on successful student outcomes, we welcome you to continue your engagement in making your school system great!”

Superintendent Marty Crawford said that if passed, the middle school project would begin this summer.

“This is going to be an 18-month project…Christmas of ’23 looks like when these facilities will be completed,” said Crawford.

This comes five years after getting the money to remodel Tyler Legacy and John Tyler High School.

“For nearly the past 20 years, Tyler and its surrounding communities have transformed K-12 education’s place in the Capitol of East Texas’ value system. Saturday, Tyler ISD taxpayers, voters, and parents proved their willingness to finish the task once again. What a great day for the students, teachers, and staff at Tyler ISD’s Hubbard Middle School and Early College High School. And what an incredible statement the Tyler community has made about itself over the last 20 years and now, with this approval, wrapping up two decades of work on how to invest in its future: its children.”
