The article reports the discussion by officials from Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District, near San Antonio, Texas, of holding a bond election in May to request more than $150 million of general obligation bonding authorization. The district has an enrollment of 8,527, and is expected to gain as many as 1,500 students in the upcoming 2006-2007 school year, which could double by 2010, thus representing a turnaround after losing revenue in 1986 due to a sharp decline in enrollment.
