Project Update - May 2023
James L. Burrell Elementary is under construction at 8104 Glade Drive in Temple.
Construction activity at Burrell elementary continues at a brisk pace. Contractors are working in every section of the building with a focus on completing structural steel, exterior walls and roofing, as well as interior walls and the installation of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. The next major milestone target is “dry-in,” which occurs when the interior areas of the building are protected from the outside weather.
James L. Burrell Elementary will accommodate 800 students and was designed in accordance with the Belton ISD’s 2022 Educational Specifications, which include design considerations that will enhance the BISD students’ learning experience. In alignment with the 2022 Educational Specifications, James L. Burrell Elementary will include a variety of spaces and furnishings that are diverse, flexible and adaptable to promote collaborative teaching and learning.
Attendance boundaries were adopted in March, and now BISD is working to support students assigned to the new campus while also providing immediate relief to Tarver Elementary.
