The campus was funded as part of the 2017 bond program. The district initially worked with the city and Mueller’s master developer, Catellus, on a plan to build on a 10-acre lot in the northeast neighborhood.
However, the district has struggled to negotiate the transaction, delaying the start of construction.
On Aug. 25, the district sent an email to area parents letting them know a solution had been reached.
While the transaction is still being negotiated, a lease agreement with the city will allow the district to move forward, according to the email.
This step allowed contractors to begin on-site in early August.
The district hopes to reach a final deal by early 2022. The update means the campus is now on schedule to open for fall 2023.
The $60.96 million campus was originally scheduled to open in the fall of 2022.
The school will serve 800 students.
AISD will host a virtual community meeting on Sept. 21 to provide more information on the project, including what to expect during construction.
