Garner ISD begins capital improvement project

(Continued)

“The board has been working hard,” Collins said. “Our project started over three years ago with a building assessment. How are our buildings doing? What are the things we need to do for them? In doing that, that was sort of the start.”

He said about $1 million in repairs and updates alone were identified, so he said the board decided to look at other needs and plan for some future growth.

“We thought if we were going to do that maybe we should combine some more stuff and look at what else we could do,” Collins said.

He credited GISD Superintendent Marion Ferguson for leading the board through the educational process in learning about bond programs and how they work and are financed.
