Cindy Mallette of Americans for Prosperity – Texas in her presentation to the B/CS Tea Party on researching local debt, also gave instructions on researching local school district debt.
The Texas Bond Review Board is the primary source for researching state, county, local municipal, and local ISD debt.
To find out about bonds active in our local school ISDs on the Texas Bond Review Board site, click on Local Government Info which brings you to the page for Local Government Services.
Then click on Searchable ISD Bond Election Database which will show this form:
For ISD search – type either ‘Bryan’ or ‘College Station’ and then change the ‘Election Date’ to read “Before or on”. You can also click on the calendar icon to change dates or leave it on the current date. Change ‘Return records at a time’ to read ‘Return ALL records at a time and then click “Search with Criteria” button.
