Replacement school

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to create a replacement 3-8 school for the Rosemont Upper School campus.

New classrooms

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to create 24 new classrooms at Moises E. Molina High School.

New educational programs

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to create an Oak Cliff Transformation School, which would offer a new educational program to students across the district. The program would exist at a repurposed, existing building as a transformation school, which is a new, start-up school with open enrollment. The exact location has not been determined.

Proceeds from the proposed bond are also anticipated to expand programs at L.O. Donald Elementary and George Peabody Elementary by repurposing classrooms to expand prekindergarten.

Facility improvements

Proceeds from the proposed bond are anticipated to fund facility improvements at almost every school in District 6. Improvements include windows/doors, roofs, HVAC, and plumbing.
