Superintendent's Letter

January 30, 2023

What a great time to be a Burton Panther!!!

Welcome to the Burton Independent School District weekly update. Bond Project information will be shared as it pertains to the planning and construction of our new facilities.

Circle H Dirt Work and Excavation has moved significant dirt to level high spots, fill in low spots and prepare for select fill that will stabilize the construction site according to the specifications as prepared by the Survey and Engineering. Most of the demolition work has been completed. Rob Ogletree, the job superintendent with DSA Construction Management is onsite to supervise all interactions related to the construction project. Stad Tomlinson, DSA Construction Management Project Manager continues to research cost savings without jeopardizing quality and the final product. Materials have been ordered and currently there is no concern over delays for delivery that would affect the project schedule. Storage containers will be brought in to warehouse these supplies & have them available as needed. Hellas Construction is proactively coordinating with DSA on the Football Stadium and Track specifications to move that process along. Antonio Naylor, Architect for the project is available daily for consultation regarding plan details and to verify VE items and contractor submittals. Please feel free to email any questions to
