Happy New Year!
I am excited about all 2015 has to offer Birdville ISD. With the passage of the bond referendum in November 2014, there will be a lot of work taking place across the District in the next 36-48 months. The rebuilding of The Academy at West Birdville Elementary, Birdville Elementary and North Richland Middle School, updating outdated classroom technology and secondary science labs, renovating campuses and adding additional safety measures will require a great deal of coordination. Staff members are in the process of developing a master schedule to assist the District in making certain each component of the voter-approved bond is completed as committed to.
Beginning the work as promised …
- In December, BISD’s Board of Trustees approved HKS, Inc. as the architectural firm to design the new building for The Academy at West Birdville Elementary. The design work began in December 2014 in order to complete construction of this campus in time for opening in the fall of 2016.
- During January and February, the Board will interview architectural firms for the opportunity of designing and replacing Birdville Elementary and North Richland Middle School. Once a decision is made by the Board, it will be shared through the District’s normal communications channels.
In the coming weeks, BISD will be adding a bond update page to their website. This page will provide details on all aspects of the 2014 Bond.
It is the District’s goal to preserve the community’s valued trust by maintaining transparency throughout the entire process.
