Community meetings scheduled to share design concepts and site plans for 2012 bond schools

The Houston Independent School District has scheduled six community meetings for the month of September to discuss the progress being made within the 2012 bond program, which will renovate or rebuild 40 schools to create 21st century facilities.

The meetings are part of the district’s commitment to host at least three community meetings for each bond campus during the different phases of the building program: planning, design and construction.

Bond projects have been divided into four groups for the purpose of phasing the work. The Sam Houston Math, Science and Technology Center is a part of Group 3 slated for construction, while Kashmere High School, Scarborough High School. Sharpstown International School, Westbury High School and Wilson Montessori School are all a part of Group 4.

The goal is to present the work done so far in the design process and to share site plans, exterior drawings and, in the case of most of the schools, final designs and construction schedules.
This will be the first community meeting for the campuses with the exception of Sharpstown International School, which will be holding its second meeting. The goal is to present the work done so far in the design process and to share site plans, exterior drawings, final designs and construction schedules.

Input from the community meetings is used to guide the work of each school’s Project Advisory Team, which is made up of teachers, staff, administrators, students and community members. The team provides recommendations on all phases of the projects, which will undergo a final scope-to-budget review prior to construction.

The meetings will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
