2017 Bond Projects

Projects in the bond were developed by the Long-Range Facilities Planning Committee comprised  of  a diverse group of parents and community members. They met over the course of four months to prioritize needs of the District. District officials feel it’s important to have community input and maintain its transparency through the entire bond process – from planning, to the election, and through oversight of the work. Little Elm ISD is forming a Bond Oversight Committee of parents and community members to oversee the District’s work on the projects.
