Trustees also approve final land purchase for Elementary School #7
The Montgomery ISD Board of Trustees held a regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, September 20. During the meeting, trustees approved construction firms for projects funded by the district’s $326.9 million bond referendum approved by voters in May 2022.
Stewart Builders will serve as the Construction Manager at Risk for the Montgomery ISD CTE and Ag Science Centers, projects approved in Proposition A of the district’s May 2022 bond referendum.
“We are very excited to work with Stewart Builders in the design and construction the MISD CTE and Ag Science Centers,” Board President Matt Fuller said. “We truly want these educational spaces to be strong points of pride for this community, and we are confident that the district will benefit from Stewart Builders’ expertise and commitment to innovation, efficiency and collaboration during all phases of the project.”
Marshall Construction will serve as the Construction Manager at Risk for the facility upgrades at Montgomery Junior High, Lincoln Elementary and Montgomery Elementary, approved in the bond’s Proposition A.
“We believe Marshall Construction will be an excellent partner for our district,” Trustee Trey Kirby said. “We were impressed by their track record of delivering client projects with exceptional quality, on time and on budget, and are eager to get started on these renovations that will result in enhanced learning environments for our students.”
Additionally, trustees approved the final land purchase for Elementary School #7. The property is located off FM 2854, behind Lake Creek High School. The planned elementary school was part of Proposition A in the district’s May 2022 bond referendum.
A survey to collect suggestions for the school name and mascot will be sent to the Montgomery ISD community in the coming weeks. A special district committee consisting of staff members and parents in the Lake Creek High School feeder pattern will meet to review suggestions and make a recommendation to the Board later this fall.
Trustees also recognized Montgomery ISD employees from Human Resource, Technology Services, Finance and Student Services for the extra effort they’ve put forth during the district’s recent technology transition.
