It is our honor and privilege to serve as leaders for public education in Rockdale Independent School District. Our most important responsibility is to work with you—students, families, district staff, school leaders, community leaders, local businesses, and residents—to ensure that our children have access to the best education.
Among our duties as a Board, is the oversight of district facilities. We believe that quality infrastructure and secure and well-maintained assets should be a priority, and that this is a vision we share with our community. The present reality of school funding in Texas makes this priority a major challenge in our district and in districts across the state.
As our buildings are getting older, they require more work to keep them up to date. Currently our biggest concern is the elementary school. In the past few years, we’ve had to spend a great deal of money on replacing AC units, roofing repairs and other structural issues. We need to discuss and consider options moving forward which could include major remodel, moving some or all to the intermediate, purchasing portables, building on to the intermediate or building a new building. These are just some ideas, and we are open to discussing other options.
A committee consisting of staff, parents, and community members will be created to discuss options and a plan moving forward.
