Texas District Selects Program Manager for $89.5M Bond

The Crosby Independent School District in Crosby, Texas, recently announced that it has selected Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) as program manager for the completion of an $89.5-million school bond that voters approved in 2017, according to a news release.

LAN will help the district expand Crosby High School, a project estimated for completion by June 2025. The project is a result of increasing enrollment in the district, and the high-school expansion will allow the district to increase the school’s current capacity by more than 30% to 2,490 students. LAN will also assist with renovations to the running track and planning out future upgrades for facilities around the district.

According to the news release, the bond is part of a district master plan to ready its facilities for growth; keep class sizes small; and expand its offerings of career preparation, advanced academic courses, and campus technology. “The District’s improvements and expansion will benefit students and the community. Being involved in this project is a privilege for LAN, and we welcome the opportunity to improve the learning experience for Crosby students,” said JP Grom, LAN Vice President and Director of LAN’s Program Management team.
