After passing with 69 percent of the vote on Tuesday night, the 2012 Houston Schools Bond will be the topic of Superintendent Terry Grier’s monthly meeting with principals this morning at 9 a.m. Dr. Grier will discuss the next steps for the $1.89 billion proposition. The media has been invited to the 9 a.m. meeting
Dr. Grier, Board President Mike Lunceford, and Board Trustees Rhonda Skillern-Jones, Manuel Rodriguez Jr., and Harvin Moore were in attendance at a districtwide election watch party on Tuesday night at Hattie Mae White to celebrate with staff as the returns came in.
The Superintendent and members of the board addressed the crowd Tuesday night at the celebration.
“This bond is a game changer. This is going to change the lives of hundreds of thousands and eventually millions of students in our school district,” Dr. Grier said. “It’s going to change our city. It’s going to increase property values. It’s going to bring jobs to our community.”
