This article reports that just days after successfully refunding $169.9 million of outstanding general obligation bonds, officials from the Round Rock Independent School District near Austin will consider whether they will put together a new bond package to replace a referendum that failed at the polls in March. School board trustees will discuss a possible new bond proposal at their meeting. School officials say that new classrooms are needed to meet demand in the fast-growth district. Since the last successful bond election was held in Round Rock Independent School District in February 2000, the district has grown by approximately 6,000 students, to approximately 32,000 students.
