During the fall of 2011, the CISD voters approved the issuance of almost $44 million in bonds in support of the Canutillo Independent School District's need for upgrades and construction. The Bond Referendum, known as Decision 2011 provided funding for the construction of a PK through fifth grade school named Congressman Silvestre & Carolina Reyes School, and for additions and upgrades across the District.
The passing of the Bond Issue triggered the creation of the Canutillo Bond Accountability Committee. This committee function is to assist the CISD Board and Superintendent by monitoring the plans, process and progress of the bond program and related construction projects. The formation of this committee was a pledge by the Board to stakeholders during the DC2011 School Bond information presentations held throughout the district.
