Victoria Advocate: Bloomington ISD talks dome-covered gym and shelter space at special meeting

The Victoria Advocate has covered our Bloomington ISD Safe Room and Athletic Facility project.

The Bloomington school district board at a special meeting Monday sorted through plans for a dome-covered gym that would also serve as a shelter space in case of natural disasters.

The $2.4 million project would be funded by the district's fund balance and money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

FEMA would contribute $1.8 million to the shelter space, while the district would contribute $600,000.
