Schulenburg isd

This bond is being proposed because of our desire to provide the highest quality of education for current and future students of Schulenburg ISD in the safest environment possible.

The reason . . .

Background on current facilities

Background on Current Facilities

  • I.E.Clark Fine Arts Center –

    Problem – Consistent separation of walls and foundation over the


    Summary – The Fine Arts Center has been experiencing

    structural and cosmetic distress associated with settlement

    and/or differential movement in the pier and beam

    foundation for many years or decades.

    The cause of this distress is inadequate support provided by the

    concrete pier and beam foundation. “Moody Engineering Inc.

    July 26th, 2010/Forensic Engineering Investigation of Damage to

    the Fine Arts Center at SISD”

Background on facilities recommendations

Background on Facilities Recommendations

  • Redirecting Surface Water runoff

    (District Fixed)

  • Extend Roof Drain Gutters (District Fixed)

  • Replace cast iron drain system within foundation crawl space

Background on facilities recommendations1

Background on Facilities Recommendations

  • Four professional firms were contacted for

    opinions--all recommended repair vs.

    replacement due to the cost of repairing the

    older building.

  • All issues with the theatre/auditorium were

    structural--not cosmetic.

Background on facilities recommendations2

Background on Facilities Recommendations

  • In August, the District heard the reports and, rather than invest major amounts of money into the facility again, closed it down.

  • The amount necessary to repair the Arts Center to meet the standard of expectation is reflected in the Bond Proposal in the construction of a new theatre/auditorium.

The search for solutions

The Search for Solutions . . .

  • The district’s 3/5/10 Committee, together with many local volunteers, formed a Facilities Committee and began looking at current and future needs.

  • A Facilities Tour was taken by the Committee.

  • The Board of Trustees selected the following firms to help with plans, construction costs and bonding:

    Jim Singleton/Singleton Architects

    Von Gallagher/Gallagher Construction

    Christian Merritt/Government Capitol

    (No Expense has been or will be incurred unless a Bond Issue is passed.)
