The district currently has 15 middle school campuses. The board also approved design schematics for the district’s Middle School No. 16—which will be located near Hightower High School, south of Hwy. 6, in Missouri City—on Sept. 23.
The 2018 bond election allocated $19.7 million of the total $992.6 million for future land purchases. Amanda Bubela, director of external communications and media relations for FBISD, said money for actual construction of a future school has not been designated and would most likely be part of a future bond program.
The cost of this particular plot of land has not been made available.
The FBISD school board will meet next on Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Marshall High School following a Listening Tour at the school where parents, students, staff and other stakeholders can have a roundtable discussion with the board and administration.
