Bynum ISD May 2024 Bond Information

Bynum ISD will be holding a public hearing for a potential May bond in conjunction with our regular board meeting on February 8, 2024 at 7pm. The main building in our district is 80 years old and is in need of some renovations and is a major expense in the proposed $9 million bond package. With multiple energy projects that are tentatively planned to be  built within our district this package would allow our district to capitalize on the significant increase in property value these projects will create. This in conjunction with some changes to our states homestead exemption the average homeowner will see a decrease in their overall property tax bill even with an $.11 increase in their tax rate. Our tentative plan is to split our projects into 2 waves. The first part project will likely begin around the summer of 2025 only addressing the highest priorities. The second wave will begin after the energy projects have been completed and the new values have been certified. If the planned energy projects are abandoned our second wave of projects will also be on hold. Below is a list of some of the components of our proposed Bond package.

Main Building Renovations Includes : Floors, Doors, Wall Coverings, Utility upgrades, Roof, Drainage, HVAC (controls)

Elementary, Cafeteria, and Library: Address Foundation and Exterior Masonry Issues, Doors, Floors, Wall Covering, HAVC

Science and AG: Floors, Doors, Wall Coverings, HVAC

Hutch (Old Portable building between gym and main building): Remove, Construct a storage facility for Supplies

Other: Parking Lot Improvements, Covered unloading areas for students, Transpiration needs


2022 National Blue Ribbon

U.S. Department of Education Announces 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools

U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona today recognized 297 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2022. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Secretary Cardona made the announcement during his Road to Success Back to School bus tour.

“I applaud all the honorees for the 2022 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award for creating vibrant, welcoming, and affirming school communities where students can learn, grow, reach their potential, and achieve their dreams,” said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. “As our country continues to recover from the pandemic, we know that our future will only be as strong as the education we provide to all of our children. Blue Ribbon Schools have gone above and beyond to keep students healthy and safe while meeting their academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. These schools show what is possible to make an enduring, positive difference in students’ lives.”

With its 39th cohort, the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has bestowed approximately 10,000 awards to more than 9,000 schools. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms and validates the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in striving for – and attaining – exemplary achievement.

National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models of effective school practices for state and district educators and other schools throughout the nation. A National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing a school’s entryway or on a flagpole is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning. 

The Department recognizes all schools in one of two performance categories, based on all student scores, subgroup student scores and graduation rates:

·       Exemplary High-Performing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests.

·       Exemplary Achievement Gap-Closing Schools are among their state’s highest performing schools in closing achievement gaps between a school’s student groups and all students.

Up to 420 schools may be nominated each year. The Department invites nominations for the National Blue Ribbon Schools award from the top education official in all states, the District of Columbia, U.S. territories, the Department of Defense Education Activity, and the Bureau of Indian Education. Private schools are nominated by the Council for American Private Education.
