MISSION —Voters approved the Sharyland Independent School District bond election to raise taxes to pay for a second high school in the district Tuesday.
Nearly 1,000 Sharyland voters turned out to vote for the bond. Of those, 70 percent of the voters approved the bond that will help the school district build a second high school on 6 ½ Mile Line and Shary Road.
The new high school is projected to cost the district $55 million. Taxes could rise by as much as $0.097 cents, making the total tax rate for SISD $1.297 per $100 valuation. District residents with a home valued at $100,000 could see their taxes go up by as much as $97; or with a home valued at $200,000, taxes could go up by $194.
