Canutillo ISD preparing to ask the school board to call for bond election

EL PASO, Texas -- Canutillo ISD is preparing a bond proposal for the school board to vote on, next Monday.

The proposals inside the bond include topics are based on growth, equity, facilities, safety and security and school programming, according to Canutillo ISD.

One of the largest proposals is the proposal to relocate Jose J. Alderete Middle School to a location across the freeway.

The bond would have what Canutillo ISD spokesman Gustavo Reveles referred to as a "somewhat of a tax increase" and he estimates it would be about $5 per month for Canutillo homes, however a total dollar amount has not been set.

The proposal meeting is scheduled for Aug. 22nd at the Canutillo ISD headquarters, and the public is invited to attend.

“Kids currently have to cross over to this side of I-10 to come to school so we want to build a school where it’s more adequately needed,” Reveles said.

Reveles told ABC-7 since the bond is not yet approved, the district has not bought any land…however, based on this map of the Canutillo area, you can see a general area where the new school could be located.

“I know Alderete is kind of far out there, dealing with the traffic, dealing with Transmountain Rd., going through the outlet traffic, it could possibly help it out.”

Among other proposals in the bond focuses on growth, equity, facilities, safety and security, and school programming.

ABC-7 spoke to parents at Reyes elementary in Canutillo ISD about what their biggest concerns are for the district and their children.
