  1. Nederland Bond

    MMosely07 posted the list of upgrades, building a new high school that was poorly designed from the start is a lot different than building a brand new stadium with an administrator's name on it.    All of the upgrades and replacing the HS are needed.  The stadium is a separate proposition so it doesn't necessarily affect the school upgrade part of the bond.

    Same thing that you are doing ignoring the fact that the monthly increase is small and will be spread out over multiple years.

    And Rio had assistants cut due to the money problems.   Those jobs might not open back up again for a while.

    With the district's financial troubles, I wouldn't assume that.  No guarantee that they will pay the next guy what Rio was making or more.

    not if the bond passes in May.

    The overcrowding doesn't help.  There are teachers using converted closets, the library and the cafeteria for class rooms.   Pretty much all of the schools are out of space.  Adding wings to the elementary schools and moving the 5th grade back down will help some, but there will be a need for additional space at the middle schools as well.

    There is that danger.  But the board didn’t want to possibly jeopardize the school upgrades if people were opposed to stadium upgrades.

    Yes, the softball fields have had upgrades.   There have been additional stands, a scoreboard and batting cages put in.   I agree that it needs some additional work too. It definitely looks different from when i was there because there wasn't a field there at all!

    The upgrades are to the stadium, but as previously stated,  other groups will benefit as well.  I am guessing a new high school will include new gyms and facilities for locker rooms, etc.

    I hope so, we need to get the parents with school -age kids involved.

    I believe 155.6 million  I will have to double check.

    Schools are on the bond.  New High School and upgrades to the rest of the schools including security and technology.  The stadium will be a separate proposition from the schools.
  14. Nederland Bond

    The Nederland ISD bond is set for May 4th.   Stadium upgrades are included in this bond. (turf, press box, restrooms, etc.)
