Georgetown (Texas) district acquires land for 3 future schools

Jan. 2, 2020
The 135-acre tract is large enough to accommodate an elementary, a middle, and a high school.

The Georgetown (Texas) school board has approved the purchase of a 135-acre tract of land in the southwestern portion of the district that will be home to three future schools— an elementary, middle and high school.

The Community Impact reports that the site will enable the district to accommodate increased enrollment as Georgetown grows.

"We watch growth trends closely with our demographer, and the southwest portion of our district is an area we've been watching for some time," Gerogetown Superintendent Fred Brent says. "With the development of areas like Wolf Ranch and Water Oak, projections show we could need new school sites in the next 5 to 10 years in this area."

In November 2018, voters approved a $150.5 million bond package that included funding to acquire the land.

District voters would need to approve another bond measure to provide funds for designing and constructing schools, officials say.
