Unofficial Election Results: Voters Pass Three of Five Bond Propositions in LCISD

(LAMAR CISD) – According to unofficial election results from the Nov. 8 midterm elections, voters have passed the largest bond referendum in the Lamar Consolidated ISD’s history, approving Propositions A, B and C at $1,516,623,300. Propositions D and E failed to pass.

“We are truly humbled by the support of our community. I’d like to thank the many individuals who worked tirelessly on behalf of the district to share information and get people to the polls," Lamar CISD Superintendent Roosevelt Nivens said. " As for Propositions D and E, that did not pass, we are working to execute a plan to address the rapid growth that we are experiencing while still providing high-quality experiences for our students.”


Proposition A addresses several areas including adding and upgrading security at every campus, building new campuses to address student growth, adding to existing campuses to increase capacity and improving technology infrastructure across the district.


Proposition B provides for building a Career and Technology Center, which will house vocational programs such as Applied Agricultural Engineering, Culinary Arts, Construction Architecture, and many other CTE-related programs.


Proposition C addresses classroom and district technology and equipment. It includes replacing more than 7,000 student laptops and more than 500 staff laptops, replacing 4,000 desktop computers and 250 iPads. It also includes upgrades to 600 classroom interactive flat panels and upgrades internal digital signage capability at 35+ campuses which will improve safety and security communication allowing campuses to instantly communicate to students and staff in the event of an emergency. It also includes equipment to increase services at the district’s Graphic Arts Center that teachers and staff use.


Propositions D was for upgrading lighting and turf at the district’s sole athletic stadium, Traylor Stadium. Traylor Stadium originally opened in 1960 and has undergone a series of improvements in its 60+ years. Its current turf was installed in 2013 with a life expectancy of 10 years.

Proposition E would have provided money for land and the construction of a second stadium.
