LISD sets aside funding each year for regular maintenance, in addition to its bond programs. The Board discusses the proposed 2019 District Wide Renewal Projects, which includes the planned schedule for replacement or repair of building components, equipment, and site features to accomplish proper maintenance and avoid untimely failure.
LISD has approximately 1,486 acres of grass and athletic fields, 136 acres of roofs and approximately seven million square feet of enclosed building area to maintain. This requires a tremendous effort on the part of many people in order to keep all assets properly maintained.
Some of the features of this year’s projects include:
- Resurface the track at Cedar Park HS, Four Points MS and Henry MS
- Replace water heaters at Bagdad ES, Cedar Park HS, Cypress ES and Reagan ES
- Replace deteriorated vinyl composition tile (VCT) in LEO Phase II and MPR carpet
- Clean and seal the exterior walls at RBMS and Science Materials Center
- Replace carpet at Naumann ES
Upon approval of the 2019 District Wide Renewal Projects, certain projects will begin immediately so that as much activity as feasible can be completed before the summer. Due to severely restricted school funding, projects that can be postponed without immediate jeopardy to systems or effective operations are being deferred.
“Keeping our facilities in top notch condition and ready to positively impact our students’ learning is what our major maintenance plan is all about,” said Board President Aaron Johnson. “This is just one more way that Leander ISD is positioning itself to grow responsibly and efficiently.”
