The district will hold an election Feb. 5 on a $29.4 million bond package to finance renovations and improvements at all seven campuses. George Williford, senior vice president with First Southwest Co., the district's financial adviser, said Brownwood ISD administrators and trustees structured the current bond plan to benefit schools across the district.
