Construction is expected to get underway in 2024 on one of two middle school renovation projects voters approved as part of a 2021 bond package.
Work on Jean McClung Middle School includes interior renovations and adding a secured front entry vestibule. Other additions to the school in Fort Worth’s Handley neighborhood include new Special Education and Visual Arts classrooms. The $28.7 million project is currently in the design phase, with construction expected to begin in the third quarter of this year.
Voters also approved renovations to William James Middle School in the city’s El Poly Pyramid neighborhood. Plans include new separate rooms for band, orchestra and choir, plus new science labs. Other additions include a secured front entry vestibule and a new weight room at the auxiliary gym.
Major interior renovations are also planned for the school’s common areas, media center, cafeteria and roof. The project will also include improvements to the school’s mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, plus technology and security upgrades and removing portables.
The $52.9 million project is also in the design phase, but no construction date has been set.
The 2021 bond package will provide $1.2 billion for 27 projects, with a particular focus on renovating and modernizing the district’s aging middle schools.
