We’re Building Our Future in Spring Branch ISD

- Reprinted from SBISD's STARNews

In just a few months, the new Frostwood Elementary School will become the 11th campus to be rebuilt under the 2007 Bond Plan. The Grand Opening celebration is Thursday, Feb. 13, beginning at 4 p.m.

Public tours are planned. Under the Bond program, 13 elementary schools will be rebuilt. Valley Oaks Elementary is under construction and design plans for Rummel Creek Elementary have been approved. These schools are improving student learning and supporting our neighborhoods.

Under state law, bond funds must be used only for school-related construction, renovation and other allowed uses. By law, bond funds can’t be used to pay for annual operating costs and expenses like teacher and staff salaries.

SBISD taxpayers age 65 or older should apply for the “Over-65 Exemption” on property taxes to “freeze” their school taxes for the year that the exemption is claimed. If you have questions, call the SBISD Tax Office at 713-251-7960.
