The ninth campus in the Crandall Independent School District will be a new 1,200-student Crandall Middle School.
A groundbreaking ceremony for the new campus was held on April 28. The $60 million campus is part of a 2017 bond that was approved by district voters, and it is slated to open in August.
The land for the district was donated by a local landowner, said Superintendent Wendy Eldredge, signifying the support that local residents provide for their schools.
“We are futuristic and innovative, but we are still old-fashioned,” she said, noting the new middle school will be the first school in Crandall with a tornado shelter.
