  • New bleachers in old gym (built in 1957)

Welder Elementary School: $680,000

  • Add a secured entry vestibule

  • Add covered walkways in drop-off/pick-up areas

  • Adjustments to improve traffic patterns 

Sinton Elementary School: $600,000

  • Add a secured entry vestibule

  • Add storage

  • Replace folding partition in gym/cafeteria

  • Expand and improve sound and lighting in gym/cafeteria

  • Renovate playground

Sinton High School: $89,000,000

  • A new, replacement high school built on the current site, directly behind the existing school

  • Expand the existing livestock building for additional animal pens

  • Replace turf on football field (the existing turf has exceeded the 10-year life expectancy)

Why a new high school?

  • Sinton High School was built 53 years ago with various renovations and additions over time. Currently, we are limited in expanding core areas, such as classrooms, Career/ Tech classrooms, fine arts, auditorium, administration and support services, and food services.
  • Due to the aging infrastructure, there are several educational and functional inefficiencies to support 21st century learning and beyond.

  • It is more cost effective for the district to build a new campus and will not require phased construction.


Sinton High School: $18,270,000

  • New multi-purpose building, which will include the following: 

    • Athletic administration offices​

    • New field house and weight room

    • 60-yard practice field

    • Stadium restrooms and concessions 

  • Replace the existing tennis courts with eight new courts and lighting


Smith Middle School: $1,400,000

  • Add six-lane track
    (The track can be utilized by the community after hours) 

  • Add four tennis courts 

Why a new multi-purpose building?

  • The current weight room, fieldhouse, offices, and stadium restrooms and concessions are undersized for their utilization along with not meeting current ADA and code compliances.
  • A new multi-purpose building will allow for a new weight room, fieldhouse, practice field, athletic administrative offices, and stadium restrooms and concessions to be housed under one roof and climate controlled.
  • Due to the aging structures and functional inefficiencies, it is more cost effective to build new facilities.
  • The indoor practice field can be used by various activities and programs throughout the day regardless of weather conditions

Why add athletic facilities to the middle school?

Currently, middle school students are bused to the high school daily during 7th period athletics and after school practice for all tennis and track activities. Adding a track and tennis courts to the middle school will allow students to remain on campus.

Note: Project budgets represent a "turn-key" amount, which includes estimated construction cost, escalation due to inflation, fees, permits, furniture, equipment, and storm shelter code requirements. 


​What will a new high school provide?
  • A defined front entrance with security vestibule creating a controlled, single point of entry and exit

  • Centrally located support services and administrative offices

  • Adequately sized classrooms with up-to-date technology and furniture accommodating flexible, collaborative learning initiatives

  • New Career/Tech Education (CTE), Fine Arts, and Agriculture facilities expanding current program offerings for more student participation along with the ability for new programs to be added

  • New library and media center, cafeteria, and kitchen and food services

  • New auditorium with 900-1,000 seats (current auditorium has 800 seats)

  • New gymnasiums - competition gym with boys’ and girls’ locker rooms, concessions area and front foyer along with a practice gym

  • Additional parking, separate bus loop and expanded drop-off/ pick-up areas

  • The new high school will be built to accommodate classroom additions in the future when needed

More than 95 percent of the bond proposal will provide construction of new facilities at the high school to replace undersized and aging infrastructure.
