​​​​Splendora ISD LogoSPLENDORA, MONTGOMERY COUNTY – The Splendora ISD Board of Trustees has purchased 13.6 acres in the 250-home Splendora Fields Subdivision, north of Ipes Rd. 

The land—purchased for roughly $880,000—will be used for a new elementary campus.

"We are still in the contract negotiation phase," said Kevin Lynch, SISD assistant superintendent of business and operations. ​

Construction on the new campus could begin as early as May 2018 with a projected move-in date of July 2019.

The land purchase and construction of the new campus, expected to cost $25 million, is being funded by a $30 million bond.

The new campus will have a capacity of 850 students, though it will likely only have around 500 students when it opens.
