Bond 2010 overview


Thank you, Citizens Oversight Committee!

 

SAISD Bond 2010 is nearing completion! On November 2, 2010, voters approved a $515 million bond that enabled SAISD to make much-needed upgrades across the District. A total of 68 schools benefited from Bond 2010, with 22 of those schools receiving major renovations.

The overall bond program is on track to come in just under budget and is being financed by a property tax rate that has been consistently lower than what was originally projected.

On April 26, we celebrated all that the bond program made possible and paid tribute to members of the Citizens Oversight Committee who helped to oversee implementation of the projects. The few remaining projects are expected to wrap up in summer 2016, except for the extensive Highlands High School renovation, which will be completed in 2017, with virtually the entire campus being newly constructed. The extended completion time was intentional, to provide the least amount of disruption to student schedules and the highest levels of safety.

The bond funded seven categories of improvements:

  • Safety & Security upgrades, $43.9M – improved lighting, new fire alarms, key-card access controls, security cameras and fencing at 68 schools.
  • Technology Upgrades, $6.2M – new classroom computers and related hardware to replace aging equipment and provide increased student access to technology for 68 schools. 
  • Renovations & Additions, $347.4M – extensive renovations to 22 schools -- 14 updated to modern facilities. Included infrastructure repairs, and 8 classroom additions and renovations.
  • Career Education Enhancements, $73.8M – new or upgraded facilities for 8 high school career programs; and the addition of career technology labs at 11 middle schools.
  • Playgrounds and Track Resurfacing, $6.1M – new or improved playground equipment for 45 elementary/PK-8 schools; and all-weather track resurfacing and lighting at seven high schools for use by students and surrounding community.
  • Alamo Stadium and Convocation Center, $35M – Renovations for infrastructure involving electrical, plumbing (water and sewer systems), storm drainage system; sidewalks, parking, stone walls restoration, lighting, landscaping and irrigation; ADA access; stadium and convocation center play areas, seating, restrooms, locker rooms, concessions, press boxes, storage, sports lighting, and sound and security systems.
  • Transportation Efficiency, $2.5M – provides for necessary space for bus transportation center, resulting in shorter bus travel distances; and supports consolidation of all transportation, maintenance and facilities operations for additional cost savings and operational efficiency.
