Yen HUYNH RABE started this petition to Pasadena ISD School Board Trustees and

Pasadena ISD School Board Trustees unanimously approved the design development phase of a new Administration Building currently located at 1515 Cherrybrook Lane in Pasadena. Cost of new building to taxpayers- $27M.  

The NEW LOCATION would be on Mickey Gilley (of Gilley’s) Blvd near Fairmont Parkway across the street from the Moose Lodge, which has a BAR. 

The decision took place November 17, 2020 at the school board meeting.  See presentation of new building at the 46:30 marker of the November 17th video. https://www1.pasadenaisd.org/cms/One.aspx?portalId=80772&pageId=29442584

We are in the middle of a pandemic where teachers, students and their families are stressed.  And many are sick or have lost a loved one. Students are using laptops for virtual learning that need to be updated. Pasadena High and Sam Rayburn High have broken restroom stalls and toilets. South Houston High needs a paint job and has aging portables for classrooms. Furthermore, these older schools have roof leaks, mold and a/c issues. Thompson Intermediate needs to be relocated due to flooding.

If there are health concerns due to current situation at the administration building, then employees should be moved to another location as soon as possible and the problem remedied in order to avoid further aggravation of employees' health that may cause PISD to incur further costs.

The move would affect the viability of the surrounding businesses and community at the current location. 

We, the undersigned, request that you rescind your decision and make the repairs necessary to the administration building at its current location.  To build in the Fairmont area is a misuse of $27M of taxpayers’ money.
