Design renderings for schools in Groups 1 and 2 of the bond program, as well as other building projects, were on display at the 2015 State of the Schools luncheon, generating plenty of interest and conversation, as well as significant social media buzz.

Twenty-eight campuses plus the Delmar project were included in the event. Each school selected 2 Project Advisory Team (PAT) members to represent their campus, with most of the high schools sending at least one student team member. The PAT members did a great job of discussing their projects and answering questions from attendees.

“The renderings not only help folks visualize their new school, but they represent countless hours of time spent behind-the-scenes in the planning process,” said Sue Robertson, HISD general manager of facilities planning. “I’m proud of all of our PAT members, and very grateful for their dedication and their commitment to building 21st century schools.”

Non-bond proejcts that were also featured at the State of the Schools event include Energy Institute High School, North Forest High School and Early Childhood Center.

Some of latest design renderings are on display in the lobby of the Hattie Mae White building.
