The development of the May 2014 PISD bond election was a multi-year process that included long range strategic planning, demographic projections, a high school visioning process, a district-wide comprehensive facilities assessment and community input.
Pflugerville ISD’s last bond election was in 2007, which began laying the groundwork for future bond projects, namely a fourth high school. As a fast-growth school district that is projected to continue to grow by approximately 400 students per year, this bond package was developed in order to allow Pflugerville ISD to keep up with this growth as well as take care of its existing facilities.
In the fall of 2013, the district hired an architect to advance the development of a future bond program.
A district-wide facilities assessment was conducted that outlined current conditions, including building code compliance, handicap accessibility, general building conditions, mechanical, electrical and plumbing, civil, structural, kitchen, roof, and security surveys. The report identified a total of $482 million in facility needs.
At the conclusion of the report, a Citizen’s Facility Advisory Committee (CFAC) was formed to study those needs and work with the district administration to formalize a recommendation to the PISD Board of Trustees as to what to include in a bond package.
