UVALDE, TX (November 16, 2022) – During a Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District school board meeting on the evening of November 16, 2022, the school board approved the site selection and conceptual design for the new elementary school presented by the Uvalde CISD Community Advisory Committee.
“The Uvalde CISD Moving Forward Foundation is honored to begin the next phase of our work to build a new elementary school in the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District. With this evening’s approval of the site and conceptual design by the UCISD school board, we now move to the schematic design phase of the project,” said Tim Miller, Executive Director of the Uvalde CISD Moving Forward Foundation.
The site selection and conceptual design presented to the UCISD school board are a result of the committed work of individuals from the Uvalde community serving on the Community Advisory Committee along with representatives from Huckabee Architects, Inc. The design process was also informed by design charette meetings with students, campus staff, district departments, law enforcement, and emergency responders.
In the wake of the tragedy at Robb Elementary School, the Uvalde CISD Moving Forward Foundation was established to help collect funding for the construction of a new elementary campus in the Uvalde CISD. With support from generous donors, funds raised will help the children, families, and staff of the Uvalde CISD community move forward together.
