First two Bond 2023 projects completed

Ector County ISD announced Thursday that two Bond 2023 projects are now complete.

The first project, approved by voters in November 2023, was the resurfacing of the tennis courts at the six middle schools – Bonham, Bowie, Crockett, Ector College Prep, Nimitz, and Wilson & Young Medal of Honor middle schools. The updates incorporated the school’s colors where possible and took place during April and May.

The second project to be completed was the installation of 843 interactive flat panels in classrooms at 38 schools across the district. This work started in January and ran through early June.

The interactive flat panels replaced the mounted projectors and touch screens. About half of the district’s classrooms had interactive flat panels already, the approval of Bond 2023 allowed the rest of the classrooms to be equipped with them right away.

Updating the Technology Standard for classrooms is part of the strategic plan, and the team’s research showed these – interactive flat panels – are today’s best display for teachers. Interactive flat panel technology ties in with a laptop for mobility, a monitor, and a docking station so that everything is connected and runs through the keyboard and mouse. The teacher and students can also screen share from any device wirelessly, and it can be used as a whiteboard or to connect to the internet. It includes many built-in tools and gives teachers more tools right at their fingertips than ever before, a news release said.
