March 1, 2017 - School improvements for Burgin Elementary, funded by the 2014 Bond program, began in February.
The work at Burgin will be done in two separate stages. The first, which is underway now, includes adding two STEM labs and a strings room and enlarging the security vestibule. To make the two STEM labs, the current science room and two adjacent classrooms are being combined and renovated. The current strings room will also be completely renovated with a new ceiling, wall finishes, acoustic wall panels, flooring, marker boards and tack boards.
The second stage, in 2019, will include a series of life-cycle and deficiency upgrades.
Student safety will always be the number one priority. All of the construction will be completed either when school is not in session – in the evenings or on weekends – or in areas separate from students. In addition, all construction workers are required to pass a background check before they work at Burgin or any AISD campus.
