Groundbreaking ceremonies, bond community meetings planned for spring

Two groundbreaking ceremonies, five community meetings and quarterly Bond Oversight Committee meeting scheduled through April

With construction making noticeable progress across HISD, many projects are reaching their next milestone – including including groundbreaking ceremonies at Parker Elementary School and Booker T. Washington High School, and a host of community meetings scheduled for the spring.

Community engagement is an important component of the district’s bond program. Stakeholders serve on the district’s Bond Oversight Committee, as well as on Project Advisory Teams for each bond school. In addition, each school also holds at least three community meetings to seek input from community members and to inform them of design plans and status at various stages of the project.

These upcoming meetings are open to the public and all stakeholders are invited to attend.
