Voters have given two Houston-area school districts the green light to spend a combined total of almost $1.5 billion.

Brazoria County voters approved a nearly $480.5 million bond and tax ratification Tuesday night.

Alvin ISD said the money will be used to fund the construction of two new elementary schools, two new junior high schools and one high school.

The funds will also finance the renovation of some of the district's existing campuses as well as updates to security.

It will also be used to pay for future land purchases by Alvin ISD.

The rebuilding of the E.C. Mason Elementary School campus will be the first project funded with the money and will start in the first quarter of 2019.

The school district said there will be no increase to tax payers since the tax ratification was approved at the same time as the bond.

Voters in Fort Bend County passed a nearly $1 billion bond on Tuesday.

The money will fund three new elementary schools, one new high school and pay for future land purchases, according to FBISD.

It will also finance renovations to existing schools.

More than $140 million will be spent on technology and the rest will be for transportation and security upgrades.

This is the largest bond Fort Bend ISD has ever seen.

Property taxes could increase for home owners starting in the year 2020.

A home with an appraised value of $200,000 would see a potential $60 increase in its existing property tax each year.

The school district's enrollment is expected to grow by almost 10,000 students within the next 10 years, according to FBISD.
