2014 Bond Updates Week of April 7th

 

Almost $90 million goes to maintaining schools

As any homeowner knows, you can’t have a house without a roof and mechanical systems that are efficient and safe. 

In Northside ISD we believe that safe, well maintained facilities enhance the learning opportunities for students.

The bond proposal up before the voters provides $89.84 million in upgrades for older neighborhood schools including new roofs and waterproofing, and makes other replacements and renovations to chiller, boilers, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems.

The proposal also calls for the system replacement for the 36- year old Clark High School and addresses energy controls, plumbing, lighting, cabling, paving, drainage, flooring, and school tennis court resurfacing.
