A group of parents, business leaders, retirees and educators have come together to promote the 2015 bond election which the Alvin ISD Board of Trustees approved in August. The $245 million bond election includes construction of four elementary schools and land for a fifth elementary school, construction of a seventh junior high school and design for an eighth junior high, land for a fourth high school, a central district stadium to serve all of the high schools, a satellite transportation center, Career and Technical Education Center to serve the entire district, upgrades to the auditorium at Alvin High School and upgrades to Memorial Stadium (both of which were built in the 1940’s).
“We are excited to be able to help promote the bond election,” said Paul Ingamells, one of the co-chairmen of the group. “We’ve been working since the school board called the election, raising money, designing materials and getting the word out about this important election,” he added.
“The best part of working on this bond issue is the relationships we have made with residents across the district,” said David Becker, co-chairperson with Ingamells.
The group has a website – www.teamalvinisd.com and a Facebook page (facebook.com/TeamAlvin ISD) with all kinds of information about the bond issue, where signs and other items can be obtained, as well as how to donate. Contact them at [email protected]
“This bond election is critical for the future of our children. Alvin ISD encompasses 252 square miles in Alvin, Manvel, parts of west Pearland, Iowa Colony, Liverpool, Amsterdam and parts of Rosharon and is growing by about 1500 students per year. We must have the schools necessary to meet the educational needs of this ever increasing number of youngsters,” said Ingamells.
Election day is Nov. 3 and early voting starts Oct. 19 at any voting location in Brazoria County. Visit the Brazoria County website for early voting times and locations.
