Citizens vote to pass the Alvin ISD school bond referendum
Community members went to the polls Tuesday to decide on the future of Alvin ISD facilities, and made it clear that they were in favor of passing the bond.
Voters have been educated over the past few months on the details relating to the growing district, the bond election and what it will take to ensure that the students of Alvin ISD continue to receive the best educational experience.
"Everyone on the board recognized that we have extensive facility needs due to our growing student enrollment. The projects contained in the bond package will allow Alvin ISD to address the needs associated with our fast growth,” said Tiffany Wennerstrom, president of the Alvin ISD Board of Trustees.
The referendum passed with 67.63% of the vote.
The passing of the bond will enable the school district to begin construction on the highly anticipated High School #3, which is scheduled to be opened in August of 2016.
Currently students living in the Pearland areas of the school district are zoned to Manvel High School, which was built in 2006 for 2,500 students. The campus has already surpassed the capacity.
In addition to building High School #3, the passing of the $212.445 million bond will also enable the District to start construction on elementary 16 for 800 students; replace Longfellow Elementary at the original site to accommodate 800 students; purchase land and design for elementary 17 and purchase land for elementary 18; start construction on Manvel Junior High School near Manvel High School, to accommodate 1,000 students; renovate and expand Alvin Junior High to accommodate 1,000 students; purchase land for junior high seven; cover the cost of design and related costs for a Career and Technical Education facility, and a new Godwin Ag Facility to improve instructional access. The District will also designate funds specifically for safety and security projects, replacing outdated communication systems and adding surveillance cameras. Land and design for a centralized facility for an additional district athletic stadium, satellite transportation center and district competition swimming pool (natatorium) will also be purchased. All projects were recommended by the Citizen’s Advisor Committee prior to the call of the bond election.
“We appreciate the members of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee for their diligent work in assessing the needs of the District. Their selfless dedication to our students and community has certainly helped to chart the course for the future of our District,” said Dr. Fred Brent, Alvin ISD superintendent of schools.
“A focus on education has always been a priority of the Alvin ISD community. As the District continues to grow, the community’s support of the Alvin ISD Bond will provide quality instructional facilities that will serve our students for decades
