School Bond Program Management
Sheldon Independent School District’s Board of Trustees selected LAN as Program Manager for the $285 Million bond. The high-profile bond program is critical to accommodating the District’s fast growth and is the largest in the District’s history.
LAN is providing comprehensive Program Management services, including the development and management of the bond program’s schedule and budget, creating measurable milestones, cash-flow requirements, assisting in land acquisition, in the selection, recommendation, and management of professional and construction services; in providing utility availability options, and in ensuring that the bond program is within the budget and on time. Additionally, LAN is performing design review for multiple projects as part of the bond program and is providing community out reach/ community relations services, including the development and maintenance of the District’s Bond Program website.
The program consists of a new high school and elementary school on greenfield sites, and renovations to re-purpose the existing high school and middle school. Additionally, the bond will accomplish the retirement of millions of dollar’s worth of deferred maintenance across multiple campuses and security upgrades to many locations. The High School is using fast-track techniques to accelerate the schedule.
The new High School Campus includes a New High School facility for a 3,000 student body, a new football stadium, which can hold up to 10,000 spectators; anew Elementary School for an 800 student body; the renovation of a mechanical system for an elementary; the conversion of the existing High School to a Junior High School; and various other bond-approved projects.

A note from the School Board President
"I can not express enough how invaluable LAN has been to managing our 2016 Capital Improvement Bond Projects. LAN has guided Sheldon ISD stakeholders through all of the nuances of pre-bond planning, preconstruction, and now new construction. LAN has truly separated themselves as being more than program managers."– Fred Rivas, Board President
