During an April 12 board meeting, Lewisville ISD trustees voted to authorize the final payment related to hail and wind damage incurred at eight district campuses during a March 2017 storm.

Marcus High School suffered the most extensive damage, according to district documents. Repairs to that campus cost the district’s insurance carrier more than $6.8 million. The district paid a deductible of $250,000, which covered the damage at all eight schools. The final repair cost for the high school campus was $1.4 million less than initial estimates because of contingencies built into the estimate that were not used.


Briarhill, DeLay and Lamar middle schools and Valley Ridge, McAuliffe, Heritage and Highland Village elementary schools were also damaged in th storm. Those repairs were completed and paid for in previous claims.
