HISD to vote on renovation plan

April 10, 2008 9:10:52 AM PDT
Tonight, HISD's school board will vote on a plan to hire architects to replace and renovate more than a dozen schools. That meeting starts tonight at 5pm. Voters approved the $805 million bond last fall. Once the school board hires the architects, design work will begin and construction on each new school would then take about two years.

HISD also plans security upgrades for each existing school and to make improvements to science labs at middle and high schools.
