The District is moving forward with its plan to improve and renovate athletic facilities at Little Elm High School. What was defined as being a part of Phase I are four different elements to include football, baseball, softball, and tennis facilities. These athletic facility improvements were included in the November 2017 Bond.

During Monday's board meeting, school board members approved the scope of work and the budget of $8.48 million of bond money that will be used for:

1. Football/track at LEHS location

  • renovate and replace the track 

  • add new shot and discus

  • replace and renovate field turf

  • add new bleachers and press box

  • storage building and a new scoreboard


2. Baseball 

  • renovate and replace the turf

  • replace homerun fence

  • add new covered bleachers and press box

  • add new covered bullpen/batting cages

  • replace scoreboard

  • renovate existing storage areas

  • add secured area at the rear dugout


3. Softball 

  • renovate and replace the turf

  • replace homerun fence

  • add new covered bleachers and press box

  • add new covered bullpen/batting cages

  • add secured area at the rear dugout

  • renovate scoreboard

  • create a storage area


4. Concourse Areas 

  • provide a level, hard surface walking area with terraced retaining walls

  • improve drainage

  • new concessions (with A/C), restrooms, storage building

  • replace/revise fencing throughout the park

  • extend WiFi and power throughout

 

Tennis Courts 

  • resurface existing tennis courts

"Any time you get a chance to improve facilities for students, the benefits are tremendous. Not only does it lead to better performance on and off the field, but it creates a sense of pride for their sport and for the school they represent," said Daniel Gallagher, superintendent. "Our students and coaches deserve the very best we can afford to give them." 

 

The work begins in November and is projected to be completed by spring. The timeline of the projects is subject to change pending weather.
