Aldine ISD’s Central Office is relocating. After more than 50 years at the location on Aldine Westfield Road, the district’s new headquarters will be located at 2520 W.W. Thorne Drive.
The new Central Office will be located in the former Baker Hughes building. The property was purchased by the district in the spring of 2015 from the district’s 2014-15 general operating budget.
The new location is much larger than the building on Aldine Westfield Road. It will provide more room and allow the district to consolidate a majority of its staff in one location. Additionally, the new facility has more parking for employees and stakeholders and it is efficiently designed with modern infrastructure. The two-story building will also have a cafeteria that will be operated by the district’s Child Nutrition Services Department.
The new location will be home to the following departments:
Deputy Superintendent’s Office
School Assistant Superintendent’s Offices
Office of Communications
Curriculum and Instruction Department
Human Resources Department
Accounts Payable Department
Risk Management Department
Accounting and Business Services Department
Federal State and Special Programs
Research and Evaluation Department
The new Central Office will open on March 21 when district staff returns from spring break. A dedication ceremony and open house will be held on Tuesday, April 19 from 5-6 p.m. and is open to the public for tours of the facility. The first Board of Trustees meeting in the new building will be on April 19 at 7 p.m.
The district will continue to utilize the Aldine Westfield building. Student services and Career and Technical Education will remain at that location. The Tax Office will remain at its current location, 14909 Aldine Westfield Road.
All departments that are moving to the new facility will have their phone numbers roll over to the new location.
