The article reports that the Katy Independent School District has called a bond election for May 13, 2006 in Houston, Texas. The proceeds of the bond offering will be used for classroom additions. However, the district is still unclear on how much bond should be released for the offering. The offering is influenced by the release of the Houston district's 10-year plan that involves the building of 25 new schools.
