Greater Austin is one of the fastest growing major metropolitan areas in the U.S., and the population of Manor, located just 12 miles northeast of Austin, has grown by more than 160% since 2010. Anticipating an additional 2,800 students in the next four years, Manor Independent School District passed a $280 million school bond program to be used for academics, technology upgrades, and new facilities. The District recognized the need for an experienced and dedicated program manager to oversee the program and hired HPM to ensure schedule and budget compliance as construction advances over the next three years.
The program includes the build-out and delivery of a new performing arts center, a new middle and elementary school, classroom additions for three campuses, a new early college facility at Manor High School, a transportation facility and four new athletic facilities. The bond program funding these improvements is one of the largest the district has initiated in its history.
