Clear Creek ISD’s board of trustees approved two construction projects related to the 2023 bond, with one being $4.89 million and the other being $4.97 million, as well as multiple facility projects.

The overview

Both bond projects will apply to central plant replacement projects at multiple elementary schools, according to district agenda documents.

The $4.97 million bond will apply to repairs at Falcon Pass, Goforth and Robinson Elementary School, while the $4.89 million bond will apply to repairs at Bauerschlag, Gilmore and Weber Elementary School, according to the documents.

Completion dates for both central plant replacement projects are Aug. 1, and the chillers will be completed by Jan. 5, 2025, according to the documents.

How we got here

These are some of the first construction projects to be approved that are related to the district’s $302 million bond, which received voter approval on Nov. 7, 2023.

The $302 million bond is aimed at upgrading school infrastructure, maintenance and making building improvements within the district. Officials have described the projects within the bond as being of “critical need.”

Other upcoming projects include a new secured vestibule at Bay Elementary School, a $2.9 million project for a new access road, flooring and lighting upgrades at multiple schools, and technology infrastructure upgrades, according to district documents.

Related highlights

Facility projects were also approved to replace the mechanical boiler at Clear Brook High School, which recently failed unexpectedly, according to the documents. The funds total to $125,000 to replace and install the boiler.

Replacing the boiler will save the district $5,000 per month in rental costs, as CCISD’s Maintenance department has had to rent a temporary boiler for the area as cold weather recently approached, according to the documents.
