Jarrell ISD Superintendent Dr. Bill Chapman, joined by Trustees and members of the architecture and construction groups, turned the dirt on Jarrell’s second elementary school April 16. Dr. Chapman was pleased to talk about how the school district is preparing for and accommodating the continued explosive growth in Jarrell in general. “I’ve been here six years and there has been very little time that we have not been planning to build or actually building something. We have had 14 percent growth this year alone and we predict 11-12 percent, year over year, for the next four or five years. This school will be ready to welcome 800 students at the start of the 2019-2020 school year. We are so excited and glad that our voters have entrusted us to be good stewards of the bonds that they approved in last year’s vote.” The school design was provided by Huckabee Architecture and is being built by Joeris General Contractors.
