Improvements to traffic safety and athletics facilities at Williams Elementary School and Georgetown High School will be funded using savings from the 2021 bond, district documents show.

The setup

Georgetown ISD trustees approved the use of bond savings and interest from the 2021 bond to fund the purchase of limestone blocks for the elementary school and resurface the high school's running track, documents included in the board's consent agenda from April 15 show.
  • The 6-foot-long blocks of limestone will be placed in the grass along Rock Ride Lane to prevent drivers from parking there while picking up students from the campus.
  • The track has reached the end of its resurfacing interval and will be repaired over the summer to ensure it is ready for the start of the school year in August.
The breakdown

Both projects will be funded with leftover funds from 2021 bond projects. Trustees approved not-to-exceed amounts of $32,000 to purchase limestone bricks and $225,000 to resurface the GHS running track. However, should Proposition D in the 2024 bond pass, the funds for the GHS track project will be reimbursed through those bond funds.
