Tarrant County College 2019 Bond Improvement Proposition

Connecting Education & Training to Local Jobs, Opportunity & Leadership

Election Day: Tuesday, November 5, 2019

Early Voting: October 21–November 1, 2019

It's Been 25 Years Since Our Last Bond Proposal

It's been 25 years since Tarrant County College (originally founded as Tarrant County Junior College) last held a bond election. During this time, our annual enrollment has almost doubled, increasing by more than 45,000 students.

To meet the classroom needs of our students for college degrees, community education, and workforce training, the Tarrant County College Board of Trustees has called for a zero-tax rate increase bond proposal to benefit all 6 of TCC's campuses. 

A Zero-Tax Rate Increase

If approved by voters, TCC's 2019 bond improvement proposition will not increase TCC's property tax rate.

The TCC 2019 Bond Package Includes Improvements to Restore / Build Classrooms For:

  • More than 200 offerings in different associate degrees & certifications
  • Career-ready training of healthcare technicians and nurses
  • Public safety training for careers in law enforcement, emergency medical services (EMS), and fire fighting
  • Adult job re-training classes
  • Technology and computer science career training
  • Skill-training classes in construction trades, culinary arts, hospitality, and manufacturing
  • Transferrable college classes to local 4-year colleges (like UTA, UNT, TCU, TWU, Tarleton & others)
  • Advance college credit opportunities for Tarrant County high school students

The projects in the TCC bond improvement package were determined by a thorough assessment of the needs and priorities of classroom facilities at all 6 TCC campuses across Tarrant County. If approved by the voters, the TCC Board will hire an outside project management firm to ensure the bond projects are built on-budget and on-time.
