Dublin ISD board of trustees will discuss a November bond election at 8 p.m. Monday during a special meeting in the high school library.

The issue has resurfaced after an extension was granted for the district's eligibility for qualified school construction bonds.

"We are not voting on calling a bond election Monday night," Board President Sammy Moore said. "I understand everyone's feelings on taxes. But since we have a chance to build a new educational building at an extremely low interest rate, we owe it to the voters to discuss this issue and possibly give them another opportunity to make a decision."

The district originally applied for the loans last spring through the Qualified School Construction Bond (QSCB) program, which lowers the cost of constructing and renovating school facilities. The QSCB grants allow districts to obtain loans with interest rates from 1-1.5 percent.

Dublin voters rejected a $5.44 million bond election in May that would have renovated the middle school campus. Fifty six percent of voters opposed the bond package.

Following the election, the Texas Education Agency extended Dublin's QSCB eligibility through December for the low-interest loans.

Moore said Monday's discussion will only be a "preliminary" measure giving the board an opportunity to discuss a proposal and direct Superintendent Shaun Barnett to explore the school's options for a November bond election.

"[The November election] is the last opportunity the district has to take advantage of the QSCB. Monday night is an opportunity for the board to decide if this is something they would like to explore," Barnett said.
