The Texas City ISD Board of Trustees unanimously called for a $136.1 million school bond election for May 5, 2018. This includes four new replacement schools and three district-wide initiatives. This action came after a recommendation from the Facilities Advisory Committee (FAC), made up of more than 70 Texas City-La Marque community members who spent more than 3 months studying current facilities, educational programs and student population.
The FAC recommended replacing the following schools: Guajardo Elementary School (formerly Northside) at a cost of $25.7 million, La Marque Elementary School at a cost of $24.4 million, La Marque Middle School at a cost of $44.5 million and La Marque Primary School at a cost of $24.1 million. In addition, the FAC recommended district-wide improvements for all schools with the following initiatives: safety and security at a cost of $6.5 million, roofs and parking at a cost of $9 million and one computer for every student in grades 7-12 at a cost of $1.9 million.
