Last month.we submitted a grant proposal to the Texas Comptroller’s State Energy Conservation Office. We received notification on Friday that EISD had been selected to receive this grant. The grant will provide funds to help replace several old air conditioning units in the district with new, energy efficient units. EISD will receive approximately $35,000 in grant funds. In return, the district will contribute about $10,000 in funds for this project. The grant will help replace units at the Intermediate School and the Primary School. Our goal is to have the units operational for the start of the 2010-2011 school year. I want to thank Jack Wallace, director of maintenance for the district, for his help in the specifications of this grant.
