Georgetown ISD closed on the purchase of 64.82 acres of land near East View High School in mid-December, according to a Dec. 19 news release.

What residents need to know

The site—located in the district’s fast-growing southeast quadrant—is situated northeast of the intersection of Patriot Way and SH 130, just south of EVHS.

It is big enough to house a future elementary and middle school, according to the release.

“The southeast part of our community continues to grow at a rapid speed and outpace other growing areas of our district,” Superintendent Devin Padavil said in the release. “Securing this property now allows us to strategically plan for schools in an area where people are desiring to live.”

GISD would need voters to pass a future bond election in order to have the funding to build on this land, the release says.

Get involved

The need for an elementary and middle school on this site was identified during the district’s recent Citizens Advisory Committee process, which evaluates existing district facilities and resources in anticipation of a potential bond.

The district opened a community survey Dec. 15 to gather feedback on projects that could be included in a future bond.

These discussions are happening as GISD is projected to gain more than 6,000 in the next decade, according to a recent demographer’s report.
