Longview, TX — The Henderson ISD school board today voted unanimously to call a $26 million November bond election to finance a new middle school.
The school board called the Nov. 8 election to meet age and safety issues at the district's campus, said Human Resources Director Stacey Sullivan. Henderson Middle School was built in 1953 and houses the district's sixth, seventh and eighth graders.
If voters approve the bond, it will come with a 9.5-cent tax rate increase, Sullivan said. The school board adopted a tax rate of $1.18 per $100 valuation at Tuesday's meeting. The 9.5-cent increase would increase taxes on an average home by about $5 per month.
