Bond Election to Expand Alvarado Junior High
The Alvarado ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously on August 12 to call an $11,150,000 bond election for November 5, 2019. The bond proposal is for an addition at Alvarado Junior High (AJH) to address student growth and begin a grade realignment process.
The expansion at AJH, which was part of the campus master plan when designed in 2013, will add approximately 29,000 square feet to the existing facility. It will provide capacity for an additional 300 students and will include classrooms, science labs, collaboration spaces and restrooms.
The additional space will allow 6th grade students to attend the junior high, which then allows 3rd grade students to attend Alvarado Intermediate School, creating room for growth at the district’s three elementary schools. This change is the first step in the district’s long-term grade realignment plan, which will be to eventually operate PreK-5th grade elementary schools, a 6th-8th grade middle school and a 9th-12th grade high school. This long-term plan will mean fewer changes and transitions for students.
