To help meet the growing educational demands in Keller ISD, Keller Center for Advanced Learning, located at 201 Bursey Road, is expanding classroom and program spaces. The project will also add additional parking for the campus. According to Chief Communications Officer Bryce Neiman, the expansion is primarily being done to accommodate growth in industrial trades courses.
The expansion was approved as part of Keller ISD's 2019 bond package. According to Nieman, the work on the KCAL started last April and is scheduled to be done in August. He went on to say the estimated cost of the project is $21.5 million, which includes the construction costs of the district's new Agriscience Learning Center, which opened this semester on a different site.
“These new additions will help to build the employee pipelines for our regional industries, as well as allow Keller ISD students to become entrepreneurs in these fields,” said Rob Wright, Keller ISD's career and technical education director.
