Current CAMPUS Capacity Projections
Due to the current growth of the district, all Jarrell ISD schools are projected to be near or exceeding functional capacity utilization within the next five years.
The proposed bond would allow for construction of a second elementary school and grade realignment bringing grades 3-5 from the current intermediate school level to the elementary school level. The existing intermediate school building will remain to be utilized for district use, as needed.
The bond would also add capacity to the existing middle school and high school with proposed additions and renovations.
