MIDLAND - Midland ISD (MISD) plans to build three new 800-student elementary schools. Each school will be 92,500 sf and will be paid for by a $163 million bond.
MISD anticipates the design period for the three new elementary schools will begin in January and take eight months, with construction scheduled to begin in October. Construction of all three schools is scheduled for completion in December 2014.
