Prosper ISD officials have taken the next step toward building two new campuses that will help address growth in the district.

The board of trustees approved the maximum price of the district’s 19th and 20th elementary schools Dec. 11. This allows no more than $39.48 million to be spent on Elementary School No. 19, and no more than $38.62 million to be spent on Elementary School No. 20.

Hall Elementary School is experiencing increased enrollment due to the growth in the west side of the district, Deputy Superintendent Greg Bradley said.

"There is a lot of activity going on just west of the tollway, so we're going to need both of these schools,” he said.

The gist

The district released bids for construction companies to submit their proposals before Thanksgiving break, Bradley said. Both schools will be built by Pogue Construction.

The 19th elementary school is the last elementary from the 2019 bond, while the 20th elementary school will be the first project financed out of the district’s 2023 bond package, he said. Both campuses are expected to open for the 2025-26 school year.

The details

Elementary No. 19 will be located in the Legacy Gardens neighborhood. The school’s cost is higher than No. 20 as the district will need to complete additional off-site work as part of its agreement with Risland, which is the neighborhood's developer, Bradley said.

The 20th elementary will be located in the Mosaic community. There are not yet residents in the neighborhood, but by the time the campus will open in August 2025, it is estimated there will be 400 occupied homes, Bradley said.
