HUTTO ISD A new committee consisting of community members, district sta and district ocials will help Hutto ISD plan for its future growth. The HISD board of trustees approved the creation of the long- range master facilities planning committee at a May 25 meeting. The committee will consist of 60 people, 25 of whom will be district sta and ocials and 35 of whom will be board-appointed citizens. Assistant Superintendent of Operations Henry Gideon said the committee’s work will largely involve providing input and direc- tion regarding the district’s strategic plan, specically as it concerns construction and improvement of Hutto ISD facilities. Gideon said he hopes to have the committee begin meeting in July.

The 170,800-square-foot middle school, located just south of Kerley Elementary School, will have a capacity of 1,200 students. Design rm VLK Architects incor- porated public input from HISD students and sta into the design. Key features of the design
include a 186-space parking lot; the incorporation of technology for blended learning; and a focus on compact, ecient use of space.

VLK does not yet have a cost estimate, but $77.76 million of the district’s $194 million bond approved in 2019 was set aside for middle school improvements and construction of the new school.
