COCISD moves forward on Bond

By Cassie Gregory

The Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated Independent School District is moving forward with Bond projects and related curriculum plans.

“Bonds from both Proposition A and B have sold at very good rates,” Superintendent Leland Moore said. “The I&S tax rate will end up being approximately 12.5 cents for the upcoming tax year, which is even lower than we expected.”

Architects and administrators have been meeting with teachers to work on final drawings for buildings and additions, and construction has already begun on the high school track. It will be finished in time for spring track season. Construction will begin on campus projects when school releases for the summer.

Dr. Moore, district administrators, and Board of Trustees President Barbara Moore traveled to Sam Houston State University on Friday, Jan. 19, to attend a Collaborative Workforce Development Meeting. They met with university leaders from the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs, Center for Innovation & Technology and College of Business Administration, Engineering Technology, Online Education, and College of Health Sciences. The groundwork was laid for future partnerships related to the new Career & Technology Education (CTE) expansion.

“The work that has been made possible by the voters of this district will serve the COCISD students and community for years to come,” Moore said.
