View All News & Events

December 19, 2023


Thank you for your support in 2023! Over the last year a lot of work has gone into the 2022 Bond projects and we’re wrapping up the year on a high note. 

On Dec. 12, we hosted the construction kick-off for Odom Elementary School — the first major school renovation as part of the 2022 Bond. The upgrades to Odom’s open-concept floor plan will fully enclose learning spaces and improve safety for students, teachers and staff.

  • The event included remarks from Principal Sondra McWilliams and Interim Superintendent Matias Segura and a presentation from the project team about the design of the new spaces.
  • Students created a garland, which included messages about what they love about their school. The garland was then used to close off the construction area as a special welcome to the new campus design.
  • Check out our quick video of the event to see our students in action. And don’t forget to follow Austin ISD on Instagram (@austinisd) to keep up-to-date on all the happenings with our Bond projects.
