Hitchcock ISD’s 2022 Bond Projects progressing: All projects on track to be completed by 2024-25 school year
Hitchcock ISD is seeing promising project progression on the items included in its May 2022 bond package.
The bond, passed on May 7, 2022 with a vote of 52% for and 48% against for a total just over $43.6 million, included many additions and upgrades across the district.
Joiner Architects, the Houston-based architectural firm selected to oversee HISD’s bond package, provided many positive updates at Hitchcock ISD’s January Regular Monthly Board Meeting.
The district’s softball field and baseball fields are nearly finished, with estimated completion being mid-February.
Renovations at Stewart Elementary School and Crosby Middle School are scheduled for summer 2023. On-going work beyond summer will not affect school activities for either school.
The press box at Bulldog Stadium is scheduled for completion in July 2023 and will be usable for the 2023-24 school year.
Four remaining projects, the new CTE facility and band hall/fine arts building, classroom additions, a new culinary lab and cafeteria expansion, all at Hitchcock High School, are scheduled for completion in July 2024 for use in the 2024 25 school year.
“We are pleased with the progress we’ve seen so far on each of our projects,” said Superintendent Travis Edwards. “The most important thing for us is ensuring our voters and stakeholders see the continuous improvements we are working to make to our district with our student’s best interests in mind. This bond and the projects associated with it is just another building block for us as we strive to enhance our educational abilities here in Hitchcock.”
The district expects to have a representative from Joiner Architects at each Regular Monthly Board Meeting moving forward in order to stay updated with the bond package’s progress.
Hitchcock ISD School Board Regular Monthly Board Meetings are typically held the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. If wishing to attend a meeting, visit hitchcockisd.org/school-board/upcoming-meetings prior to the meeting to confirm the date and time.
