HISD: Getting out the Vote. Passing a Historic Bond.

As the seventh largest school district in America and the largest in Texas, Houston Independent School District (HISD) has experienced a tremendous increase in enrollment over the past twenty years, with very little improvements in infrastructure. To fulfill HISD’s commitment to providing quality education in innovative, technologically-advanced and safe learning environments, HISD decided to call a bond referendum — $1.89 billion, the largest in the HISD’s history, and one of the largest in the country.

In order to answer queries, educate stakeholders and address myths, a series of community meetings was conducted, neighborhoods were engaged, media coverage secured and a social media campaign implemented. The public affairs campaign led to the referendum passing with more than 78 percent of the vote.
