2007 Bond Project: Lee High School JROTC Facility
Numerous questions have arisen concerning replacement of the Lee High School JROTC Facility. This project was not included in either the 2003 or 2007 Bond Programs as developed, presented and approved by the voters of the North East Independent School District. However, because of the identified need to replace this aging facility, the Lee High School JROTC Replacement project was considered for possible inclusion in both the 2003 and 2007 Bond Programs using Bond Interest Earned funds to complete the replacement project. In the case of both the 2003 and 2007 Bond Programs, insufficient Bond Interest Earned funds were ultimately available to move forward with this project.
For the 2011 Bond Proposal, as adopted by the Board of Trustees in August 2011, the Lee High School JROTC Facility was formally and specifically included in the project improvements planned for the Lee High School campus, and will be constructed as part of the 2011 Bond Program. The existing Lee High School JROTC Facility will be replaced with a new, modernized facility.
JROTC Facility that includes: (1) two classrooms, (2) sixteen-lane indoor rifle range, (3) armory, (4) supply room, (5) cadet dressing rooms and showers, (6) cadet and cadre administrative office areas, and (7) drill marching pad measuring 110 ft x 110 ft square. Total revised facility program square footage equals 13,750 square feet.
