The answer is definitely, although it all depends on the upcoming bond election. A bond election will be held on Nov. 3, 2009 for residents of Shadow Creek Ranch and all of Alvin ISD. Even with the current economic situation the Alvin/Pearland area is still growing, which means more students enrolling and more schools needed. In addition to funds for maintenance and renovation of existing facilities, the bond will provide funds for the building of the 800-student "Elementary 14", to be located in Shadow Creek Ranch. The 2005 bond paid for the land & design of Elementary 14. The land has been purchased and the design is ready to go! The Nov 3 bond will provide the funds to actually build the school. If the bond passes, the district is ready to move quickly to begin construction on Elem 14. This will be great news for the faculty and students at Marek & Wilder Elementaries since they're both already over capacity. This is a good "problem" to have! According to school district data, Alvin ISD is growing by approximately 600 students per year which is equal to almost one elementary school every year. Most of this growth is found in the west side of the district in the Pearland and Manvel city limits. So...is another elementary school coming to Shadow Creek Ranch? Let's hope so. The children need it! Click on this link to the Alvin ISD web site for more details.
