“Our community believes in providing exceptional educational opportunities, and we appreciate its trust and confidence in us as we begin these projects that will impact all of our 42 schools,” Westfall said in his statement. “Now, we begin the design work for our construction projects as well as begin creating the processes for rolling out the updates for safety and security, technology and mechanical systems."


Canvassing to make election results official will take place at the Nov. 18 school board meeting, KISD Communications Coordinator Nicole McCollum said in an email.
