This would be hard to make up but unfortunately it is true.
The folks at EPISD either forgot about a school or they want to slip one into the bond issue.
The bond issue as passed allowed them to either build a new school to replace Basset middle or spend money to renovate it.
They have chosen to build a new school up the road on military property.
According to this slide here was the deal:
Well now they are telling us that they forgot about Armendariz (the “Young Woman’s Academy”). Now they are telling us that it should not be a separate facility just for women but should be combined with the kids from Basset.
If they do this won’t they be combining a high school with a middle school? Also won’t they end up with an all female high school on a coed middle school campus?
It would appear that they are planning to use half of their construction contingency budget to make the changes.
The extra bill is projected to come to $15 million.
“Compact with the voters” my foot.
We deserve better
