Needville ISD extends its contract with an architectural firm | School News
Looking ahead to a possible bond election in May, the directors of Needville ISD voted unanimously at their September 21 meeting to continue making Claycomb Associates, Inc. the district architect for this- ci and related projects.
Superintendent Curtis Rhodes said Claycomb had served the NISD successfully on many past construction projects and recommended an ongoing relationship with the company.
He also suggested that representatives from Gallagher Construction Services attend the October 19 board meeting to explain their role as project managers, and the directors agreed.
“We need someone on our side in the bonding process,” Rhodes said. “I think they could really help us.”
Chief Financial Officer Brenda Essenburg explained that the company would play a fiduciary role, managing all construction projects and ensuring they are completed to specification, “working side by side with us”.
In his monthly report to the board, Rhodes said NISD staff and students “do a lot of training” for various emergencies, including active shooter threats.
“We are over it,” he said.
NISD Police Chief Craigan Colunga said there have been no major incidents or threats since the start of the school year.
“It’s fine,” he said.
