On July 15, 2021, a Bond Committee began working on a comprehensive Facilities Needs Assessment. This Bond Committee of nearly 100 people represents all areas of our District and will include students, parents (one from each campus), community members, campus staff and district staff. The group’s charge is to work through a comprehensive facilities review completed by PBK Architects, consider enrollment projections for coming years, and report back to the ECISD Board of Trustees in December. This Bond Committee is scheduled to meet monthly through the summer and fall.
This webpage will serve as hub of information regarding the committee’s discussion. After each meeting the reports and information reviewed will be posted here. A Questions & Answers document will also be included on this page, as will related media coverage of the meetings.
This Bond Committee’s work follows the work done by a facilities review committee from December 2019 through March 2020. While the committee’s work was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PBK completed an updated review of ECISD facilities, will now guide the Bond Committee through the review, and help the group develop a long-range facilities plan. PBK first evaluated ECISD facilities in spring 2017. Because that report is nearly three years old, PBK updated the information to reflect enrollment growth, repairs and maintenance already completed since that time, and current construction/repair costs.
