Commerce – The Commerce ISD will conduct its first meeting tonight in its new board room, formerly the A.C. Williams Cafeteria at 3315 Washington Street.
Students in grades 3-5 now inhabit the new A.C. Williams along Culver Street, which opened last fall.
Since then, crews with Commerce ISD have been renovating the old facility to house offices for central administration, Tri County Shared Services, food service and facilities for the Boys & Girls Club.
Superintendent Blake Cooper had stated the project costs approximately $70,000, with funds coming from left over bond dollars.
Central offices are located in the old 3rd grade wing of the school, with the 4th grade wing to house the Tri County Co-Op. The annex will be used for technology and food service.
During Monday's meeting, The Commerce ISD will be presented with the Award for Energy Stewardship.
Since signing a contract with Energy Education nearly a year ago, the district has saved over $100,000 in energy costs. Monday's meeting begins at 7 p.m. at 3315 Washington Street.
