Why It Matters:

When we went for a bond, you told us that you wanted our modernized schools to be built in a sustainable way, and these certifications show that we listened. 

As part of the 2017 Bond Program, each modernized school is designed with sustainable features aiming to create healthy and unique learning environments while reducing the cost and impact to the environment. 

  • Govalle received LEED Silver and AEGB 4-star
  • Murchison received AEGB 3-star
  • T.A. Brown and Menchaca also received certifications in 2021. 

There are 35 facilities in Austin ISD with AEGB and/or LEED certification in the district. We anticipate more facilities receiving these certifications as current bond construction projects wrap up.
