In November 8, 2016, El Paso voters approved a $668.8 million bond proposal aimed at modernizing and right-sizing El Paso ISD. The Bond helps EPISD create 21st Century learning environments throughout the District to help facilitate modern, future-ready teaching and learning techniques and invest in athletic facilities, school buses, instructional technology and safety and security measures.

ERO is finding solutions to modernize the 1961-vintage, 1,800-student, Andress High School in far north east El Paso, serving the Sun Valley neighborhood. 

The five main academic buildings received a new hydronic cooling system and the grounds were landscaped to create a college-The school sits in a floodplain and FEMA requirements limit the type of construction that is financially feasible. ERO is using the allowable re-development rights under FEMA regulations to add a new 34,567 gsf fieldhouse and a 25,786 gsf, 500-seat auditorium performing arts center which accommodates theater, music, dance and other forms of performance.
