Students, staff, and board members were recognized at last night’s HISD Board of Trustee session at the High School.
Superintendent, Dr. Steve Johnson, addressed the on-going effort on long-range facilities planning.
Under the new plan, Huntsville Intermediate and Huntsville Elementary would turn into a full-day pre-K through 2nd grade facilities. Stewart and Samuel Walker Houston Elementary would undergo modification to 3rd through 5th grades. Gibbs pre-K Center and Scott Johnson Elementary would be closed. The Mance Park Middle School would house the District Administration and Support Services building.
Further options include constructing a new middle school for grades 6 through 8. Dr. Johnson said they continue to consult with architects to arrive at costs for the proposed changes. At a Board workshop planned for February 7th, the Superintendent hopes to have the figures on bond costs and the revenue needed for facility changes.
