Shade Structure Installation & Playground Equipment Replacement
Estimated Project Timeline
Recommend an allowance of $750,000 to provide for shade structure installation and playground equipment replacement.
Background & Justification
Historically, KISD has had shade structure installation at our playgrounds as a PTA/PTO fundraiser as well as any additional playground equipment subsequent to original installation. It has come to our attention that there are some campuses that cannot raise the funds required leaving the students at a disadvantage – during the hot days of fall, playground equipment not benefitting from a shade structure can be too hot to play on. There are also older campuses that have aged equipment that may not be functional. KISD is requesting an allowance of $750,000 to fund campuses that cannot afford shade structures or replacement equipment.
