The next round of community meetings is coming up this month for five schools in Houston that are getting new campuses.

The community meetings will review the progress on the design and site plans for the schools.

They are Condit Elementary, the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Lee High School, the Energy Institute and the Debakey High School for Health Professions.

They are among 40 schools that are getting rebuilt or renovated in the Houston Independent School District.

HISD taxpayers approved the construction projects in 2012 with a nearly $2 billion bond.

The Energy Institute, though, is an exception. That project is being funded by other sources, including private donations.

HISD says the feedback from the community is important since it helps guide the construction plans.

All meetings are from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Here is the schedule:

  • Oct. 14: High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, 4001 Stanford
  • Oct. 16: Condit Elementary School, 7000 South Third, Bellaire
  • Oct. 20: Lee High School, 6529 Beverly Hill St.
  • Oct. 21: Energy Institute High School, 1808 Sampson
  • Oct. 28: DeBakey High School for Health Professions, 3100 Shenandoah
