Bond Info 2023

Big picture
The Springtown ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously on Monday, Feb. 13, 2023, to call a bond election for May 6, 2023.

The proposition asks for voter approval for bonds in the amount of $120,780,000 for the purpose of constructing, improving, and equipping a new middle school campus; restroom renovations at the existing intermediate school, and purchasing land for school buildings.

Beginning in 2022, the Springtown ISD community, comprised of community members, business owners, parents, and SISD staff, evaluated various options and possibilities for the students of Springtown ISD. The capacity and critical needs impacting the District now and in the future were shared, discussed, and analyzed with the SISD Board of Trustees.

These meetings concluded that various conditions throughout the District pose security concerns, the challenge of aging buildings, and overcrowding. This process identified critical needs and helped prioritize areas deemed most important to be recommended to the Board of Trustees for consideration leading to this called bond election.

Highlights of the bond include the following proposed projects:
  • New Middle School (6-8) - 1,204 Student Capacity, Gymnasium, Football Field and Track, Land Purchase
  • Ninth Grade Campus (9) - Current Middle School Building, Opens Up Classrooms at SHS
  • 4 Elementary Schools (PK-5) - New Elementary (Current Intermediate Building), Additions and Renovations to Restrooms at the Current Intermediate School

By constructing additional restrooms at Springtown Intermediate, the District will be able to serve PK-5th at Goshen Creek Elementary, Reno Elementary, Springtown Elementary, and the current intermediate school that would become an elementary.

The realignment of moving 9th-graders to their own campus (the current middle school building) will create more capacity at the newly constructed Middle School and Springtown High School to allow for additional academic programming.

The event will be held in the Reno Elementary Cafeteria, so bring your blankets & pillows and grab some floor. Snacks will be sold at the event, so come hungry.

Thursday Folders

Reno Elementary provides every student with an orange folder at the beginning of the year. Please check the folder on Thursdays for the following items:

  • Upcoming events
  • Graded papers
  • Progress Reports (every 5th week of the 9 weeks). This will let you know the progress your student is making before the report card is sent home the 9th week of school.
  • Report Cards go out every nine weeks.
  • Other important school announcements


Regular school attendance is essential. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a student’s education. The student and parent should avoid unnecessary absences. Two important state laws—one dealing with compulsory attendance and the other with how attendance affects the award of a student’s final grade or course credit—are discussed below:

Compulsory Attendance

1) At the elementary level, students are considered absent if they come to school 20 minutes after the start of the school day or if they are checked out from school 20 minutes before the end of the school day.

-Upon returning to school after being absent, late to school, leaving early from school, or sent home, the student must bring a note that is signed by the parent/guardian that describes the reason for the absence

-When a student incurs three or more unexcused absences within a four-week period, the law requires the school to send notice to the parent.

A court of law may impose penalties against the parent if a school-aged student is deliberately not attending school. The district may file a complaint against the parent if the student incurs ten or more unexcused absences within a six-month period in the same school year.

Course Credit

2) Attendance for Credit or Final Grade (All Grade Levels) To receive credit or a final grade in a class, a student must attend the class at least 90 percent of the days it is offered. A student who attends fewer than 90 percent of the days the class is offered will be referred to the attendance review committee. 90% of a school year means students cannot miss more than 17 days, whether the absences are excused or unexcused. The committee will determine whether there are extenuating circumstances for the absences and how the student can regain credit or a final grade.

Scan Attendance Notes to Our Front Office

Absence notes should be sent into the office no more than 3 days after the absence occured.

Notes will not be taken after notification is sent home regarding excessive unexcused absences.
