The Eanes ISD board of trustees approved a total of about $1.5 million in purchases for projects funded by the district’s 2023 bond during a meeting Nov. 28.

The gist

The four purchases included:
  • The resurfacing of tennis courts at Westlake High School, West Ridge Middle School and Hill Country Middle School for a total of $1.04 million
  • The replacement of gym bleachers at West Ridge Middle School for a total of $174,000
  • The purchase of a building containing two classrooms to accommodate enrollment at Cedar Creek Elementary for a total of $165,370
  • The replacement of video switchers and graphic systems at the Westlake High School Performing Arts Center for a total of $181,610.40
All work on these projects will be conducted during the summer of 2024 and are funded by Proposition A of the bond.

During the meeting, the board also discussed a quote from Apple for the purchase of iPads for students. The quote estimated a total of $6.5 million, and was approved by the board so that a final cost may be negotiated.

The background

Voters approved the $130 million bond May 6, which was packaged in three propositions.

Proposition A, totaling $117.77 million, focuses on safety and security upgrades, physical repairs, and refurbishments at every campus. Funds for Proposition B, totaling $2.41 million, will be used for repairs at Chaparral Stadium, including track surface replacement and pole lighting replacements. Proposition C funds, totaling $11.25 million, will be used for replacing student and staff digital devices as well as devices, labs, classrooms and offices, as previously reported by Community Impact.

Quote of note

“I just want to mention that [the purchases are] made possible by the recently passed bond with the support of our community,” EISD Superintendent Jeff Arnett said Nov. 28. “So thank you to all of our residents who voted for the bonds in May.”
