YISD ADDITIONS & RENOVATIONS PROJECT UNDERWAY
Foundation Excavation for High School Addition
At the April 29th, 2019, meeting of the Board of Trustees, Board members voted unanimously to award a contract to Weaver & Jacobs Constructors, Inc. of Cuero, TX for the construction of additions and renovations to YISD schools. With contracts in place, a notice to proceed was issued in mid-May. Currently, excavations are underway for foundations & underground utility work is taking place.
The program, approved by the board, includes additions and renovations to the existing Middle School to serve grades Pre-K through 5th. Highlights include new Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st-grade classrooms with restrooms in each classroom. The program also includes an addition and renovations to the High School to serve grades 6th through 12th. The addition will include a new state of the art library, science labs and computer lab. The image at left illustrates the proposed additions to both campuses. Once the additions & renovations are complete, the older portion of the existing Elementary School will be demolished to make room for additional parking.
The project is expected to be completed in time for the fall semester in 2020.
