MISD would like to thank our Board of Trustees for their strong leadership and dedication into making these projects become a reality.
Earlier this year, Manor ISD unveiled our new Manor Senior High School, set to open in August 2018. Now, the district is giving the community a sneak peek at another transformation to better enrich our students and prepare them for life after high school.
Manor ISD is excited to announce new improvements in our Career & Technical Education field. The district will be expanding their current Agriculture Barn to become a Show Barn for MHS Future Farmers of America students. In addition, the F Wing at Manor High School is being renovated to become the hub for CTE in MISD.
"We are training students for jobs of the future at Manor ISD," said MISD Superintendent Dr. Royce Avery. "These new facilities will take our programs to the next level."
The $1.39 million ag barn will not only be able to allow staff and students to house more animals, but also give MISD the chance to welcome other districts in by hosting competitions. It will have 15,670 sq. feet of space.
"It is really going to raise the profile of the programs here in Manor when we can invite other districts to our facilities to compete in these competitions," said CTE Director Barry Bacom.
The $4.6 million renovations to the CTE wing will include upgrades to the culinary lab, computer lab, and advanced manufacturing. There will also be a new Audio/Visual Production studio, two new health science labs, business incubator space modeling Google offices, and a stand-alone building for architectural design and construction. Renovations will also be made to the facade, restrooms, walls, and floors of the 26,000 sq. feet building.
"These spaces will really mimic what students will experience in their industry," said Bacom.
"This will be a great opportunity for our students to start their 9th and 10th grade years instead of 11th and 12th grade to really think through what they plan on doing after graduation," said MHS Principal Jon Bailey. "Thinking outside of the box, expanding opportunities to really cater to the needs of our students."
These projects are expected to be completed by the start of the 2018-19 school year. We like to recognize Claycomb Associates, Architects for their outstanding work.
