Kris Lynn, Montgomery ISD's assistant superintendent of finance and operations, said two of the district's bond projects from its 2022 bond package—the Lake Creek High School addition and Creekside Elementary School—will break ground in May. Lynn presented a bond update during an April 18 school board meeting.

According to previous reporting, a $326.9 million bond was approved by voters last May that includes a seventh elementary school and additions to Lake Creek High School, among other projects.

During the meeting, Lynn said on May 2, the board will approve the guaranteed maximum price for Creekside Elementary and the Lake Creek High School addition, which is set to break ground in the middle of May. Lynn said the design process has begun for the $61.61 million centralized career and technical education center—which will be located along Lone Star Parkway between Buffalo Springs and Plez Morgan drives along with the agricultural science center, according to previous reporting—and permitting has begun for upgrades at Montgomery High School, Lincoln Elementary and Montgomery Elementary School.

“This will be a very busy summer in Montgomery ISD with significant work being performed on multiple projects over a short period of time,” Superintendent Heath Morrison said in an April 18 news release. “We are excited that many bond projects will be underway, and our community will soon begin to see the investments that voters made in our school district through the passage our May 2022 bond referendum.”

Montgomery High School upgrades are projected to begin construction in spring 2024 and upgrades to the athletic complex are set to also begin construction in 2024 after the football season closes, Lynn said.

The district plans to carry out bond projects over four years from 2023-25, according to the district's website. The district has already begun bond projects, such as naming the seventh elementary school Creekside Elementary. The elementary school is set to open by the 2024-25 school year.
