The Prosper ISD Board of Trustees and administration, with the expertise of Templeton Demographics, has studied housing and enrollment trends for years. As the fastest-growing school district in DFW, demographers estimate that Prosper ISD will continue to experience unprecedented student enrollment growth in future years.
Student Enrollment History and Projections
The 2019 Bond package is a result of a recommendation made to the Board of Trustees by the district’s Bond Planning Committee. The Committee was made up of local citizens, parents, and civic and business leaders. Members met several times in 2018 and early 2019 to consider the growth and educational needs of all Prosper ISD students. The Committee reviewed demographic projections, district financial information, existing facility conditions, and had the opportunity to tour existing campuses before prioritizing potential bond projects.
