Our high school graduation rate exceeds 90% and last year our seniors earned over $299m in financial aid and scholarships.
The Ysleta ISD's Board of Trustees has called a Bond Election for November 2019 for $425 million to continue to provide equity district-wide for all students and teachers. The Bond 2019 is Phase 2 of a Long-Range Plan which began in 2015 to address every student and every teacher at every campus. The bond proposal is a comprehensive plan developed by approximately 80 members of a Facility Advisory Committee (FAC) comprised of parents, grandparents, educators, and business and civic leaders who spent four months reviewing and analyzing our current facilities, the implementation of the 2015 bond, tax impact scenarios, educational programs, district finances, and both the immediate and long-term needs of the district.
