Have you heard talk about the possibility of new school buildings and other facility changes in the works at Nacogdoches ISD?
A growing community group is working alongside district staff to determine Nacogdoches ISD’s facilities needs and the next steps to address those needs.
The committee invites the entire community to take a look at the proposed plans, join the conversation and give additional input.
See the details and get answers to question during gatherings on Jan. 23 at Thomas J. Rusk Academy of Fine Arts and Jan. 30 at Nacogdoches High School — both meetings are set for 6 p.m.
Nacogdoches ISD’s consideration of its facilities needs and plans began with a district and community-formed Strategic Action Plan in May 2012. That plan led to a Fall 2012 professional facilities assessments, formation of a facility committee and prioritization of the needs found.
Current proposals to address the priorities include:
• Rebuilding Emeline Carpenter Elementary School at the same location;
• Redirecting traffic flow at Raguet, Fredonia and Emeline Carpenter schools;
• Increasing safety features at the high school;
• Building a new elementary school on the north side of Nacogdoches and closing the Nettie Marshall Academy of Dual Language campus;
• Upgrading the high school stadium bleachers;
• Building a track suitable for hosting UIL meets;
• Addressing long-term needs for HVAC systems and heat and smoke detectors across the district; and
• Building bathrooms and bleachers for
This is a limited list of the plans being considered by the committee.
