School Construction (Partial Design Only)

Project Scope

The Board of Trustees approves school locations prior to construction based on demographic projections. As of right now, High School #7 is projected near the intersection of FM 2243 and CR 175 in Leander [map]. Based on enrollment projections, the school is scheduled to welcome its first class of students in the 2029–30 school year.

The funding from Bond 2023 covers part of the school’s design costs. The remaining funds for design and for all of construction would appear in a future bond.
