    District-Wide Safety & Security Upgrades | $19,679,692
    All Keller ISD campuses except those recommended for replacement will receive updates to security systems and measures to keep the District ahead of ever-evolving threats and create the safest possible learning environment for KISD students. Upgrades would be made to Raptor scanners, access controls, and intercom systems; security vestibules and vestibule check-in systems would be reworked; ballistic film would be added on glazing at school entrances; and additional security cameras would be installed. Additionally, Crisis Counseling Suites with their own dedicated entrance would be added to each intermediate school, serving that feeder pattern's schools. 

    District-Wide Mechanical & Life Safety Upgrades | $30,800,715
    High schools, intermediate schools, and elementary schools whose systems have exceeded their expected life cycle would receive replacement HVAC systems, primary power equipment, fire alarm systems, and public address systems.

    District-Wide Technology Upgrades | $24,328,980
    All Keller ISD campuses except those recommended for replacement will receive significant technology upgrades. These enhancements include replacement of cabling infrastructure, HVAC upgrades and additions in main distribution frame (MDF) and intermediate distribution frame (IDF) rooms, renovations to MDF/IDF rooms, WAN expansion, primary power and UPS upgrades, and technology hardware replacement.

    An indoor extracurricular program facility would be constructed at each of Keller ISD's four comprehensive high schools – Central HS, Fossil Ridge HS, Keller HS, and Timber Creek HS. The spaces would each include a 100-yard turf field, along with equipment for all outdoor programs. The space would extend opportunities for athletics practices, fine arts rehearsals, and other feeder school activities – such as elementary school field days – providing protection from the elements. 

    New Industrial Trades and Agriscience Center | $21,509,217
    A new industrial trades and agriscience center would be constructed to extend and provide additional career and technical education learning spaces in which to train and prepare students for careers in various trade industries. The proposed center would include a laboratory, shop, and research space for agriscience programs, emerging technologies, transportation and logistics, and trades such as construction, HVAC, electrical and plumbing. The center would be constructed on land Keller ISD currently owns near the intersection of Golden Triangle Boulevard and North Riverside Drive.
