The projects included in the bond are based on recommendations from the Royal Facilities Advisory Committee (FAC). The committee, a diverse group of parents, employees, business owners, and taxpayers met over several months to examine facility needs, costs, and prioritize projects. The FAC came to consensus on the final package and presented the recommendation to the Royal ISD Board of Trustees for consideration at the December 12, 2022, school board meeting. The election will be May 6, 2023, with early voting April 24 through May 2. Royal ISD has attempted bonds in 2019, 2020, and 2021 unsuccessfully.

Committee Work

Exponential growth is projected to come to Royal. A Royal Facilities Advisory Committee was established for the purpose of examining district needs and create a plan to address those needs while striving to follow our 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".
