Round Rock ISD will soon begin just over $2.4 million in repairs to district facilities identified as most immediately in need, following a September hail storm that caused an estimated $70 million in damage.

What you need to know

Six RRISD buildings have been approved for repair, having been identified as needing the most immediate restoration. This comes after the district identified up to $70 million in repairs to facilities in November.

The following RRISD buildings were approved for roof repairs by consent during a Feb. 15 board meeting:
  • Brushy Creek Elementary School
  • Wells Branch Elementary School
  • Chisholm Trail Middle School
  • Round Rock High School (multiple buildings)
  • Round Rock Opportunity Center and central kitchen
  • Administration buildings
The total deductible for these buildings to be paid by the district is $2,433,134.14, district documents show.

What else?

In November, district administrators shared that about two-thirds of the district's facilities have been identified as damaged or requiring additional investigation into possible damage from the storm, district documents show.

RRISD Chief Financial Officer Dennis Covington said the broad scope of repairs is expected to cost between $50 million and $70 million, and it will take two to three years to complete. District documents state the damages are covered under the district's property damage policy, which has a 2% deductible. Covington said this 2% works out to around $1.4 million the district will have to pay.
