• Construct a new Hall Middle School to replace the existing school on its existing site
• Energy efficient and completed to current educational standards and building requirements
• Includes a controlled entrance requiring visitors to report to the campus office and present identification before being granted access to the main part of the school
• Includes advanced security systems including access control, surveillance, communications equipment and classroom intruder function door hardware
• Infrastructure to support technology and 21st century learning opportunities
• Will incorporate the existing stand-alone gymnasium as a practice gym in order to reduce construction costs (will include an updated aesthetic that blends in with the new construction)
• To be built in phases adjacent to the existing facility as to not cause disruption to the existing instructional environment for students and teachers. The existing structure will be demolished over a summer and final site work, drives and parking completed for an August 2017 opening.
• Originally constructed in 1967
• Does not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Texas Accessibility Standards and current building code
• Classrooms and science labs are undersized per Texas Education Agency standards
• Poor pavement conditions and surface drainage issues
• Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are inefficient and have met their useful lifecycle
• Structural damage to the foundation and framing systems throughout the facility
• Visible deterioration and aging of interior conditions
This will realign grade levels to provide age-appropriate curriculum and state accountability standards and eliminate the need to transport sixth graders to middle schools for advanced classes and fine arts. It also provides space for student growth over the next decade at the elementary school level and removes students from portable buildings.

Did you know?
To renovate and add sixth grade to the existing Hall Middle School, built in 1967, bring it up to modern standards and requirements and to create an equitable environment to Tison Middle School would cost $31.3 million and extend the life of the facility by 20 years. Therefore, the District is proposing to replace the existing facility with a new school at its current location to serve grades 6-8 at a cost of $41.1 million and with a 50+ year lifecycle.
