MISSION – Sharyland Independent School District officials reported to the school board Tuesday that plans are moving along for the construction of the proposed second high school for the district. Groundbreaking for the new campus, located at Shary Rd. and 6 ½ Mile Line, is expected to take place within two months.
The school district is still waiting for some details to be finalized before starting construction on the site, letting out bids for the new high school is still planned for late September. The district is currently under contract for an additional five acres where a homestead is still sitting within the piece of property and an additional quarter-acre on the west side of proposed high school complex to be used for the exit onto Glasscock Road. The reason for this acquisition is due to major power line anchors in the path of the proposed exit. These two items are expected to be complete within the next two weeks.
