TISD has completed, is working on, or is scheduling the following improvements at John Tyler and Robert E. Lee high schools for 2012-2014:

• Remodel 5 science labs at JT, 6 at REL
• Remodel 6 pair of student restrooms at JT and REL
• Fence around perimeter of REL
• Major upgrades of primary football/track & soccer field at JT
• Seal, coat and restripe parking lots at JT and REL
• Complete repainting inside and outside of JT
• Replace lower roofs at Fine Arts facility at REL
• Replace 1 cooling unit in REL Little Theatre
• AVAC replacement of D wing and choir area at REL
• Major facelift of REL courtyard
• Benches replaced in REL courtyard
• Blinds replaced as needed at REL

The proposed CTE Center and opening of the New Stewart Academy of Excellence will provide new opportunities for TISD high school students. In the next few years, this is expected to reduce the number of students currently on each campus at any given time, and reduce the need for many of the portable classrooms currently in use.
