Work on many projects began in summer 2016, according to the district. Nearly 30 projects are complete, including the McKinney High School Performing Arts Center, and seven projects must still be completed.
Two elementary school refresh projects were promised in the bond; however, after this summer, work at six elementary schools will be complete.
“We have delivered additional refresh work at McKinney High School and McKinney North that were never a part of the bond,” Chief Financial Officer Jason Bird said in the release. “And we have delivered all that in a substantially shorter period of time.”
According to the release, these additional projects were funded because the district used its own project managers and moved up the timeline for several projects.
Funds from the 2016 bond also included roof replacements, security cameras, a new fire alarm system and lock-down buttons, upgrades to baseball and softball fields, fine arts expansions at three schools and a laptop initiative.
