SALOCALLOWDOWN.COM NEISD continues from pg. 20 1604, especially with the lack of available land. He also said the district foresees that Reagan and Johnson high schools will keep growing, but there’s no long-range plan for a third high school north of 1604. The superintendent added that the district, with bond approval, will seek to do what it can with existing facilities to accommodate student growth projections. One line item in the new bond converts NEISD’s complex on Perrin Central Boulevard and Wurzbach Parkway into a trade/career academy. Gottardy recalled how his brother did not go a traditional high school-to-college route, but rather learned a trade and has built a successful, happy life around that. “I’m going to be honest, not all high school kids will go to college. There’s nothing wrong with that,” Gottardy said. “People have to define what success is for themselves and

let students do what they want to do.” The superintendent added that a career/trade academy could lure away some students from Reagan and the other NEISD high schools, but would also give each of those campuses some flexibility in student population capacity. Now that voters gave the new bond their blessings, it will take most of 2016 for the district to bring on consultants and design plans for any renovations or new construction. Meanwhile, a new facility has joined the NEISD ranks by acquisition. The school district has purchased Time Warner Cable Park, the recreational complex on Wetmore Road, after the previous owners put it up for sale. The district had been leasing it for athletic and Project Graduation activities. The new bond allocates $10 million to help NEISD cover a swimming pool at the park and heat the water in it, as well as fix bathrooms and dressing rooms.
