HVAC Renovations Nears Completion
The Schulenburg ISD HVAC renovation project at the High School and Junior High campuses is nearing completion ahead of schedule. All units are installed and up and running. Testing and balance is underway. There is miscellaneous finish work ongoing, including site cleanup. In addition, both campuses are scheduled to receive intercom and phone upgrades within the next two months. For more information, refer to the HVAC Upgrades Project Update.
Schematic Design Nears Completion
Schulenburg staff has spent the last several months meeting with Parkhill, Smith, and Cooper to develop the Schematic Design for renovations to the High School and Junior High campuses. The new design will include creating a secure vestibule at both campuses in order to improve the security for each. The Schematic Design was presented to the Board of Trustees on January 16, 2017. The Board approved the Schematic Design which means design will continue through Design Development and Construction Documentation. The renovation projects are scheduled to begin this June and should be completed in time for the 2017-18 school year. Please follow the link below to catch a glimpse of the proposed improvements.
District Issues Bonds at Lower Rates than Expected
At their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, August 1, 2016, the Board of Trustees authorized the issuance of bonds related to the May 2016 referendum. Prior to the election, financial advisors predicted an interest rate of 2.875. However, due to the District's financial condition and other favorable market conditions, the financial advisors were able to secure an interest rate of 2.09% before fees are assessed. The effective rate after fees, came out to 2.34%. The sale was definitely a success as all bonds were sold in less than 2 hours.
