The bond proposal was developed by your fellow community members to serve the needs of current and future Falcons. Projections indicate that 20,000+ lots will be developed within Royal ISD over the coming years. While developing the proposal, committee members used as their guide the Royal ISD mission statement of "investing in our tomorrow" and our vision statement of becoming a "destination district committed to instructional excellence in a safe, equitable environment for all".
