Rezoning Public Hearing Dates Set: The elementary rezoning committee met multiple times this past spring and developed a recommendation for attendance zones, which will be presented to the CSISD Board of Trustees at its August 19 regular meeting. The new attendance zones will go into effect for the 2015-16 school year to coincide with the opening of CSISD’s ninth elementary school - Spring Creek Elementary. Prior to voting on acceptance of the recommendation, the CSISD Board will hold three public forums to receive feedback from the community about the proposed new zones. The public forum dates are as follows:
Tuesday, September 2 - Time and Location TBD
Thursday, September 4 - Time and Location TBD
Wednesday, September 10 - Time and Location TBD
Approval of Repair of AMCHS Baseball and Softball Fields Guaranteed Maximum Price: The board approved the guaranteed maximum price for the repair of the A&M Consolidated High School baseball and softball fields. For more than 10 years, the two fields have been significant maintenance problems for the district, due to the fact that they cannot drain water after a rain event. The repairs include removing 12 inches of existing clay soil, grading the field so it will drain properly, rebuilding the field with the proper root zone and infield mix, adding a new irrigation system and drainage piping, installing a new outfield fence and solid sod, and installing new bases. The guaranteed maximum price for the package is $1,039,597, and the total project budget is $1,162,968 and will be paid for from savings already realized from previous 2009 and 2013 bond projects.
