    James L. Burrell Elementary is under construction at 8104 Glade Drive in Temple.

    Construction activity is increasing significantly in March with multiple subcontractors arriving at the jobsite.  The structural foundation installation will be 100% complete in March 2023.  Erection of structural steel is continuing across the building foundation this month.  Concrete block wall installation at the gym area reached substantial completion in February 2023.  Installation of exterior wall framing and sheathing has now started along with roof decking and waterproofing/dampproofing.  Crews have also begun rough-in of mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems inside the building as well as installation of interior stud wall framing.

    James L. Burrell Elementary is scheduled for a mid-year opening and is anticipated to open in January 2024. Belton ISD appreciates the support and partnerships with Cloud Construction and Huckabee Architects for working hard to meet an accelerated timeline.

    After attendance boundaries are adopted in March, BISD will work to support students assigned to the new campus while also providing immediate relief to Tarver Elementary.

    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.
