Murchison Middle School July 2018 Update

One of the key projects included in the voter-approved Austin ISD 2017 Bond Program is Phase 1 of modernization of the Murchison Middle School, which is currently in the master planning phase..

Stantec and Bartlett Cocke General Contractors have been contracted by the district for this project, and a Campus Architectural Team, made up of members of your school community, has been meeting regularly with the project team since March to provide input as we seek to modernize the facility and shape the environment for 21st century learning.

The CAT for Murchison includes:

  • Brad Clark, Principal
  • Christy Cochran, Staff

Community Meetings
As part of the district’s commitment to communicate the progress of the bond to the community, we want to be sure you are aware of opportunities for public engagement around key project milestones.

CAT meetings are taking place throughout the summer as the team works through the initial phases of planning and design. There will be a community engagement opportunity at the end of this phase, which has not yet been scheduled.
