High School Additions
The bond program will provide additions to both McKinney High School and McKinney North High School and bring both to a similar capacity as McKinney Boyd High School, or 3,000 students. While the district considered constructing a fourth high school instead of expanding the two schools, the additional $30 million in construction costs and $5 million in annual operating costs was cost prohibitive and simply not an option the district could afford to pursue. > Top

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the renovations address energy efficiency?
Current codes including energy codes will be complied with to improve energy and utility efficiency including upgraded insulation of exteriors such as roofing, walls and windows; efficient air conditioning and heating equipment; efficient lighting and sensors; and use of low flow toilets and urinals. In addition, upgrades to the District’s energy management system will be included. This centralized system enables the district to schedule heating and air usage from a single location. The bond will pay for upgrading the outdated energy management system.
How was the bond package determined?
The bond proposal was developed with input from a citizen’s-based committee representing all areas of the district. The 29-member committee, consisting of parents, local citizens and school staff, met to study the requirements of the district and prioritize what should be addressed in the bond program. The committee analyzed data including, but not limited to: the long-range facilities plan, safety and security audits, demographic projections, the long-range technology plan, financial analysis, and other data. In May of 2011 the bond election was approved by voters.
