What’s Proposed

The projects below were recommended by the Bond Steering Committee and will go before voters on May 2, 2020.

Voters will be asked to consider both Proposition A & B

 

PROPOSITION A: $209,000,000

Providing New Schools for Growth and Addressing Aging Facilities

  • New Schools

    The construction of two new elementary schools allows the district to alleviate portable classroom utilization and provide additional room for future growth.

    New Elementary School #37: $42,000,000
    • Serve grades PK-5 with a capacity of 1,050 students
    New Elementary School #38: $42,000,000
    • Serve grades PK-5 with a capacity of 1,050 students
  • New Replacement Schools

    These existing campuses are nearly 60 years old, undersized and past their useful life cycle. Replacing them with new, larger campuses provides safe, equitable learning environments with space for current and future students.

    New Harker Heights Elementary School: $45,000,000
    • Serve PK-5 with a capacity of approximately 900 students all under one roof to replace the existing HHES building
    • New modern learning environment equitable to district’s newest elementary prototype
    • To be constructed on current KISD Technology Services Center (TSC) site (which will be moved to an older decommissioned campus)
    New Peebles Elementary School: $45,000,000
    • Serve PK-5 with a capacity of approximately 850-1,000 students all under one roof to replace the existing PES building
    • New modern learning environment equitable to district’s newest elementary prototype
    • To be constructed on existing site adjacent to current campus (allowing that campus to remain operational during construction)
  • Renovations

    Ellison High School is over 40 years old and in need of upgrades to address aging conditions. Renovations will improve equity in comparison to the district’s newest high schools, as well as, extend the life of the facility.

    Ellison High School Renovation: $35,000,000
    • Administration suite renovations
    • Kitchen serving line renovations
    • Roof and elevator replacement
    • Addition of fire sprinkler system
    • Ceiling grid, tile, flooring and lighting replacement
    • Locker removal, wall tile installation in corridors and new paint

PROPOSITION B: $56,000,000

Renovating and Expanding Existing High School Stadiums

Currently, Leo Buckley Stadium, located at Killeen High School, is utilized for all four, and soon to be five comprehensive high schools for varsity games. The sharing of one stadium between five high schools, potentially in different UIL classifications (to-be-determined once High School #6 opens), leads to scheduling conflicts that require some varsity games to be played on Wednesday nights or Saturday mornings.

Proposition B will provide improvements to the athletic stadiums at Ellison, Harker Heights and Shoemaker High Schools to allow for home competition. Providing these schools with their own competition stadium will increase access and utilization for all student programs (including football, soccer, track and field, cheer, dance, band, etc.), keep students in class longer, give them more time to prepare for games, and reduce the districts’ transportation costs.

  • Stadium improvements at Ellison, Harker Heights and Shoemaker High School: $56,000,000
    • 4,500 seats (3,000 home, 1,500 visitor)
    • Synthetic turf field
    • New restrooms, concession buildings and visitors dressing room
    • New press box, PA, sound system and scoreboard
    • New field event areas (where required)
    • New fencing and gates
