Letter from Mr. Gilbert

August 29, 2018

To the students, parents, faculty and staff at WOISD.

            As you know, we continue to work toward the completion of our roofing and construction projects in all areas of the district. We are looking forward to moving into the Middle School Science Labs and Athletic Field House in the next two weeks and our roofing projects are over 90% complete. The High School Science labs are still several weeks away from completion but I am confident that you will be pleased with the finished product in all areas of the district.

            We are getting close, but we are not there yet. The real purpose for this message is to let you know that we are aware of the inconveniences (A/C problems) still occurring throughout the district.  Some of the issues are caused by equipment not replaced during the bond work shutting down and many of the issues deal with the process of getting the new equipment “dialed in” properly. Yesterday, we had a brand new, very large, piece of equipment break down during final inspection.

            All this to say, we are working with our construction partners to correct and eliminate these problems as fast and efficiently as possible. These problems are concerning to us and nothing is being ignored or taken lightly. All issues will be addressed and solved. This project is designed to extend the life of the district’s facilities for another 20 years. With that in mind, we will overcome a few weeks of challenges to meet that final goal.

            I want to thank you for your patience during this process. I want to let the community know that your educational staff is doing an outstanding job of working around these challenges to ensure your children are getting the quality instruction they deserve and I want to express my gratitude to all the students, faculty and staff for digging in and making the start to the 2018/2019 school year a success despite the challenges they face.

Respectfully,

Michael Gilbert

Superintendent
