Fort Bend ISD set to open four schools by 2018
Fort Bend ISD is on schedule to open three elementary schools by next year and a middle school by 2018.
The funds for all four schools are part of a bond package that voters approved as part of the $484 million bond package.
Construction hasn’t begun at any of the campuses, but preparation is underway.
Sienna South, Harvest Green and Grand Vista elementary schools will be FBISD’s 48th, 49th and 50th elementary schools, and they’re all set to open in time for the 2017-18 school year.
All three campuses will initially have 850 students, with the capacity for 1,000 students.
Sienna South Middle is set to open an adjacent middle school—the 15th in the district—in time for the 2018-19 school year. The school will initially have 1,200 students with the capacity to have 1,450 students.
Of the four schools, the Middle School is the most expensive, at a cost of $58 million.
Sienna South Elementary —which will be located on Waters Lakes Blvd. in Sienna Plantation—and Harvest Green, near Richmond, will both be built at a cost of $30.4 million.
Grand Vista, a new community near Grand Parkway, will be built at a cost of $32.7 million.
