Cameron ISD Board of Trustees voted unanimously to call for $14,500,000 bond election to be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. The District does not expect any increase in the overall tax rate for taxpayers in the District if the bond election is successful.

100 years after the Yoe Family donated the land and funds for what became the original C.H. Yoe High School, Cameron ISD is proposing a plan to revitalize the original C.H. Yoe Building and renovate the Ag Facilities to house our Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs.

The vision starts with a small portion of the existing parking being removed to allow for the creation of a small green space/pedestrian buffer that will make approaching the building more inviting and safer. The exterior of the building will retain its historical appearance, but will be refreshed with repairs and cleaning of the masonry, new energy efficient windows, and a new roof.

The main entry will open into a lobby which will also serve as a safety and security access control point. At this time, it is anticipated that the first floor will house the district administration office suite, professional development/adult learning, and a Health Science lab that will recreate the hospital environments in which medical professionals work.

The second level is anticipated to house an Future Teacher Education Lab and a Criminal Justice Center, including a forensic science lab. The existing auditorium space is envisioned to become a multipurpose space offering uses such as student commons, student/staff collaboration, dual credit learning, lecture hall, and board room.

The third level is anticipated to have a Business & Finance Lab and a Computer Science Center, including a mock main technology distribution center. The mezzanine overlooking the auditorium is planned to be restored, to the extent possible, to its original layout with the original chairs reinstalled as a nod to the historical aspect of the building. A unique method of providing further education is envisioned by providing museum style wall graphics and displays in the corridors on every floor to honor and educate on the history of the building, the Yoe Family and Cameron ISD.

An indoor connection providing direct access between the existing Yoe High School and original Yoe high School has been conceived to create a stronger connection between the two buildings. The building systems, including air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, insulation, etc., will all be replaced to comply with modern building and energy code requirements. Lastly, the entire facility will be upgraded to be handicap accessible, including the connection to Yoe High School, allowing full access to the amenities for each and every CISD student, teacher, or visitor.

Below are images of other district’s Career and Technical Education spaces. These example spaces serve as inspiration for Cameron ISD’s own design. Although CISD’s spaces would include many of the same features seen in these examples, the actual design would vary. The specific details of design would not be determined until after the passage of a bond.
