The expansion of toll roads within the boundaries of Round Rock ISD has created a more efficient mechanism for traveling from one District facility to another. The opening of these roadways also decreases the amount of traffic on existing roads, which also provides more efficient travel. Certain District-owned vehicles have been outfitted with a TxTag (toll road) sticker for activities that meet certain criteria. However, employees driving their own personal vehicles (or District vehicles without a TxTag) that use the toll roads will do so at their own expense. Except in isolated, documented cases, the District will not reimburse employees for use of the toll roads with their personal vehicles.
