NISD Plant Services Keep Busy with Projects

It’s been a busy summer for Nacogdoches ISD plant services and facility department.

In addition to the normal projects that take place while classes are out, the department is also overseeing completion of a number of priority maintenance projects that are part of the $77.9 million bond proposal approved by voters.

Priority maintenance projects associated with with the bond and underway in the district include replacement of heating and air conditioning units at some campuses, relocation and set-up of temporary facilities for the transportation department and installation of new lighting and sound systems for the Thomas J. Rusk Elementary auditorium.

Installation of new LED light fixtures – which is not part of the bond package – is almost complete, including the conversion to LED lighting at Dragon Stadium.

All campuses and buildings throughout the district will receive the new fixtures, part of a $1.52 million project approved in February by NISD Board of Trustees.
