The district’s board of trustees approved the maximum price of $85.7 million for Memorial High School, the 10th high school in the district.
The maximum price approved is $5.3 million less than the original estimated price of $91 million.
Construction is expected to begin on the new high school in September. The high school, located north of Eldorado Parkway and west of Preston Road, will serve about 2,100 students.
It is expected to open in 2017 as the fourth new high school in FISD in four years. The project is being moved up a year because of FISD’s fast growth, according to district officials.
Memorial High school was one of the many schools approved by voters in the bond program in 2014.
