Cypress: preparations begin for two multi-school sitesCypress: preparations begin for two multi-school siteshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=30202014-09-19T19:55:00Z2014-09-19T00:00:00Z

CYPRESS - Preparations are underway for two multi-school sites in the western portion of Cy-Fair ISD, an area poised to see thousands of new rooftops and residents in the next decade.

Demographic firm Population Survey Analysts projected 21,000 new housing units will be constructed in the far western portion of the district by 2022, prompting the district to focus on meeting future student demand in the area near the recently opened Grand Pkwy.

Located at FM 529 and Westgreen Blvd., the 179-acre Hegar site will house an elementary, middle and high school campus, allowing students and staff to share resources and facilities.

High School 11 is expected to open at the site for the 2016-17 school year, while the elementary and middle school facilities could open by 2019 and 2020. However, the timeline could change based on future growth in the district.

Initial design plans are underway on a second multischool site in the master-planned community of Bridgeland. The 125-acre site will be located on the east side of the Grand Pkwy. and west of Mason Rd. after it is expanded through the community.

The district is in negotiations with Bridgeland to purchase the site, said Roy Sprague, CFISD associate superintendent for facilities, construction and support services.

District administrators expect High School 12 to open at the site in time for the 2017-18 school year along with Elementary School 56, Sprague said.
