Bond Modernization Project Summary
The 2017 Bond called for a modernization project in the Eastside Memorial Vertical Team, the construction of a single, modernized elementary school at the Metz, Sanchez or Zavala campus site. As advised by a community planning team, one facility will receive students while one of the other two is modernized. The new facility will support 21st-century learning spaces, and offer state-of-the-art technology and community spaces. The estimated cost of the project is $25 million. The future of the other campuses will be determined by the board of trustees and the superintendent, with input from the planning team and the community.
Before any work begins on the modernization of one campus, Austin ISD is investing in all three schools with technology and safety upgrades. This work is in addition to any that takes places as part of the modernization. The estimated cost of the upgrades is $297,000 for Metz, $372,000 for Sanchez and $332,000 for Zavala.
