AUSTIN, TX. - There's no doubt that Austin has seen record growth over the last two years and with that growth also brings more students to our local schools.
We know that school districts are also a factor that many parents take into consideration when buying a home and it's looking like the city of Austin is getting ready to start modernizing our schools at the right time.
Thankfully the Austin school board has adopted a $4.6 billion facility master plan, which is expected to go before voters in November, and if it's approved, a 25 year plan will be implemented to modernize Austin's schools and continue to make the Austin Texas school district a great place for parents to send their children to be educated.
It's Time For Modernization
The Austin (Texas) school board has approved a $4.6 billion facilities master plan that paves the way for priority projects to be placed within a bond package that is likely to go before voters in November.
The Austin American-Statesman reports that the 25-year facility master plan includes hundreds of recommendations aimed at modernizing district campuses.
The district’s average facility is 40 years old, with some more than a century old. Nearly 40 percent has been determined to be in poor or very poor condition.
If the school board calls for, and voters approve, a bond package, the projects to be tackled in the first six years include:
• Relocating Liberal Arts and Science Academy to a central location
• Constructing three new schools to relieve crowding
