At Medina Valley, the number of students that we serve is growing at a rapid pace. We are the fastest-growing school district in our Region, with a 14% growth rate last school year. That exponential growth rate also places us amongst the fastest-growing school districts in the State. During the 2022-2023 school year, we added more than 1,000 students, which is unprecedented growth for MVISD.
Our theme for this school year is "Let's Grow Together!" We want to continue to embrace our school district's growth, while also honoring our history.
During the May 2023 election, the MVISD Bond proposal passed by 63 percent. The $376 million dollar bond will help to address capacity issues at our campuses, as well as purchase land for future campuses, enhance safety and security, alleviate traffic concerns and provide a facility for our Agricultural and Jr. ROTC programs at Medina Valley HS.
We thank our community for supporting our fast-growing school district, and we will continue to provide updates on the status of the projects through completion. The current projected timelines for the projects approved in the bond are as follows:
