​​​​​​​PFLUGERVILLE - Pflugerville ISD (PfISD) Superintendent Alex Torrez said the district has moved forward on several projects simultaneously to save taxpayers money because of rising local construction costs.

​The District's Big Projects

New Timmerman Elementary school, Opening: Spring 2017    

Construction budget: $22.6 million

PfISD is building a new Timmerman Elementary School at a new site instead of renovating the existing facility.

The campus is off Pecan St. for improved student safety and accessibility.

District stadium, Opening: Spring 2017 

Construction budget: $25.8 million

The stadium will hold about 10,000 attendees and will host football games and other events such as band or cheerleading competitions and soccer games.

Elementary School No. 21, Opening: Fall 2017   

Construction budget: $28.35 million

In building the school, Torrez said the new school is "right in line" with the growth the district is seeing along Kelly and Rowe lanes.

High School No. 4, Opening: Fall 2017

Construction budget: $104.4 million

Torrez said the new high school off Weiss Lane is going to set the district up for the next eight to ten years' worth of growth.

Torrez said the site can eventually host a new elementary school and middle school as well.
