HOUSTON, TX — Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District (GCCISD) broke ground on its Elementary School #17. The groundbreaking was held at 9023 Garth, Baytown, Texas.

The approximately $20.56-million elementary school is one of the major components of the $335-million bond that the district passed in May 2019 to address its rapid growth. Driven by growth in southeast Houston, this property-wealthy district is projecting more than 2,250 new students over the next decade.

“Goose Creek CISD is excited to be able to adequately support the needs of our growing community with the addition of this elementary school to the north side of the district,” said Brenda Garcia, Director of Facilities Planning and Construction at Goose Creek CISD.

“The groundbreaking of Elementary School #17 marks another milestone in the district’s efforts to manage its explosive growth and provide students the educational needs of the 21st century,” said JP Grom, Vice President at Lockwood Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN), the firm serving as the program manager for the bond program.

The new 102,000-square-foot facility, located on 18 acres, will comprise individual PreK-5 educational wings, a media center, a gym, playgrounds, and outdoor learning areas. The design is a prototype that the district has constructed in the recent past. The district is in the early stages of selecting a name for the school.

PBK designed the facility and Drymalla Construction Company is the general contractor. The new elementary school is scheduled for completion in January 2022.
