On Friday, Clint ISD held ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate the opening of new facilities for 2015 Bond Projects, one here inHorizon at Carol T. Welch Elementary and the other in the valley, at WD Surratt Elementary.
After the presentation of colors by the Horizon High ROTC, and the Pledge of Allegiance, led by the CTW Student Council, dignitaries from the district spoke about the new addition.
CISD Superintendent Juan I. Martinez touched on the need for the new classrooms, as well as the need for up-to-date areas for the students to collaborate and learn.
To that end, the new buildings include classrooms with moving nano-glass walls, where classes can combine to collaborate in larger spaces. The ten classrooms can expand via the front glass walls, and by the dividing walls, which also have whiteboards built in.
The overall facility features bright, primary colors on the walls and ceilings, and geometric shapes throughout the building.
ClintISD voters approved an $80 million Bond proposal in May 2015 to improve current campuses throughout the District; with the major projects featuring the complete renovation of both Mountain View High School and Horizon High.
