DEL VALLE, Texas — On Saturday, Del Valle ISD voters approved a $300 bond to help expand resources within the district, including money for a second high school and land for future facilities.

Around 65% of voters chose to approve the bond.

The proposition comes after the district’s growth advisory committee reported to the board that Del Valle ISD is gaining approximately 500 new students per year. As of 2022, Del Valle High School has about 3,500 students, but the committee projected the district will have more than 4,000 high school students in five years.

According to district officials, the 2022 bond proposition is not projected to raise the school district’s property tax rate.
