Southwest Elementary is getting additional classroom space, a new gymnasium, and new music and art rooms, while Lake Belton Middle School is getting a new band hall and new athletic gym vestibule, athletic training room and locker room. The 2022 Bond also included funding for CTE and Fine Arts Additions at Belton High School, as well as upgrades for existing CTE spaces.

Meanwhile, the construction of two new elementary schools, James L. Burrell Elementary and Hubbard Branch Elementary is moving at a fast pace. The district plans to open Burrell Elementary in January of 2024, while Hubbard Branch is projected to open for the 2024-25 school year.
