Supporters of the Austin school district’s proposed $892 million bond package — including Mayor Lee Leffingwell, representatives from the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, Education Austin, and the Greater Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, as well as parents and community members — rallied outside of City Hall Tuesday morning.
About 30 people gathered, carrying yard signs, in an effort to boost support for the bonds on the second day of early voting.

The bonds would also fund new facilities to alleviate overcrowding, and would expand and upgrade technology, science labs and athletic facilities.
