Bird’s-eye view of bond construction

School construction is moving forward across the city at a record pace as project teams work to implement the district’s $1.89 billion bond program. With about two dozen projects currently under construction, chances are you’ve seen some of this work in progress.

For a bird’s-eye view of some of the sites, check out these aerial photos taken in May and June.

HISD’s voter-approved bond program calls for the rebuilding or renovation of 40 schools, including 29 high schools. Once complete, HISD will have one of the most modern portfolios of high schools in the country.

The bond program also includes projects that will benefit students across the district, including $100 million in technology upgrades, $44.7 million to replace regional fieldhouses and improve athletics facilities, $35 million to renovate middle school restrooms, and $17.3 million for safety and security improvements

Schools set to open in time for the start of the 2016-2017 school year include Condit and Mark White elementary schools, North Houston Early College and South Early College high schools, Mandarin Immersion Magnet School, and (non-bond) North Forest Early Childhood Center.
