Bond Oversight Committee
Voters in Spring Branch ISD approved a $898.4 million bond referendum by 80 percent of the vote in November 2017.
That same month, the SBISD Board of Trustees approved a charge for the formation of a Community Bond Oversight Committee (BOC) to ensure that projects under the bond program remain faithful to the scope of work -- as approved by voters -- and are completed on-time with quality and within budget.
In May 2022, SBISD voters approved the $381.6 million 2022 Bond Program, with 73 percent of the vote.
The 2022 Bond Program responds to the 2017 Bond Program commitment to develop the vision for a world-class SBISD Career and Technical Education (CTE) program and needed facility and technology improvements to bring that vision to fruition.
The updated Charge and Composition was approved by the board of trustees and reflects the addition of the 2022 Bond Program as a responsibility of the Bond Oversight Committee.

- 2017 Bond Plan approved by voters on November 7, 2017 and the 2022 Bond Plan approved by voters on May 7, 2022.

Membership for the BOC was approved by the board of trustees at the January 2018 workshop meeting.
