Grapeland Wants Larger Elementary School

The Grapeland Independent School District (GISD) School Board had a recent meeting to gain public input on two building options for its aging elementary school at 210 3rd St. The board must select one of the options and prepare a plan by Feb. 16, to present a bond package to voters in May.

The first option is a new school building that would cost between $6.8 million-$7.8 million, and take approximately 18 months to complete. The new building would measure from 47,700 to 48,000 square feet.

The second option calls for demolition of two sections of the existing school, and building a new structure in its place, while renovating the newer wings. The project costs would be from $5.6 million to $6.6 million, with construction also taking approximately a year and a half.

The board indicated it will make a decision by Dec. 19.
