TISD Bond Project Process – Determining the projects to be completed pending passage of the Timpson ISD Facilities Bond election was a lengthy, careful process.  In recent years, the community has voiced to school personnel about concerns/needs of the school district including parent pick-up in front of the elementary school, need for certification classes to make students job ready when graduating from high school, overcrowding in the gym for games, graduation and other special events, and drainage problems..  These concerns voiced by the community and school staff and results from facility assessments the district routinely conducts prompted the Board and district personnel to determine the best way to correct these concerns.  Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) facilities experts were brought into the district to help determine the most pressing needs in the district.  The facility experts developed a list of facility needs based on their findings, the district facility assessments and the needs identified through concerns voiced by community and staff over the past several years.  In the next step of the process, staff representatives from the three campuses, administration, maintenance, cafeteria and transportation met to discuss facility needs and review the TASB facility report.  A survey was next sent to all campus/district personnel to rank/prioritize all facility recommendations in order of greatest need.  Using the prioritized list, cuts were made to the original list of projects submitted by TASB facility experts to determine which were the most critical in order to meet the educational and safety needs of the students.  All facility needs identified by the facility experts would be too expensive so some cuts were necessary.  The projects were then reviewed by the school architect and potential school construction project managers.  With students able to transfer to other school districts, schools need to be inviting and safe to students and be able to meet their academic and extra-curricular needs in order to remain competitive with other schools and be the kind of school parents want their children to attend.
