The JISD Operations Department will be hosting a meeting at the Kitty Hawk Middle School cafeteria on May 3, 2018 from 6 pm to 8 pm. There is a lot of construction going on within Judson ISD and this is your chance to play a part in it and stay in the know.

  
This will be a time to discuss updates regarding the bond, construction and projected school placement throughout the district. We look forward to seeing you there.

Summer Winding Down, Bond Work Cranking Up

Work going on at JCARE Academy

If you've been around any number of campuses in Judson ISD, chances are you've been seeing some construction work going on.  This is the result of the 2016 Bond propositions that voters passed.  This involved a number of upgrades and renovations at existing campuses.  The initial work at some of the older campuses was to make them a bit more secure with vestibule style entrances. After that, it was updating flooring, dressing rooms and facilities that students use all the time.  Technology upgrades are also on the way and don't forget work is beginning on a new elementary school on the south end of the district in the Escondido North area.  

Below are pictures of some of the biggest projects that have been pretty active...such as Woodlake Hills Middle School where expansive soils are being addressed and the impact is being dealt with. Also, Hartman Elementary School where new flooring and wall surfaces are being replaced. We'll be touring the district over the next many months to try to give a smattering of the work being done. Stay tuned.

Your 2016 Bond Money At Work

Box office side of parking lot 

One of the first projects from the 2016 bond that's turning dirt...actually in this case it's turning asphalt, is the Rutledge Stadium parking lot.  If you've been to any event at the stadium over recent years and driven across the parking lot, you know it's needed work.  Well, it's underway with some of the work preps already finished on the box office side, while the end zone area has been excavated with the old surface being ripped up and will be resurfaced next.  The box office side at least is scheduled to be finished by the beginning of football season with the end zone following soon after that.  The last part will be the lot in front of the gym. Each one will feature a beefed up composition and structure. 
We'll soon bring you more information and photos during the summer of other bond projects that are underway.  Be looking for updates periodically showing progress of the work. It'll give you an idea of what's going on.

We will honor the confidence voters have placed in this bond by using these resources as effectively and as transparent as possible for the good of the students.
