Sheldon ISD Construction Overview

In May 2016, Sheldon ISD voters approved a $285 million bond proposal to support the district's enrollment growth - the first bond called since 2006. The planning for the bond included a multi-year analysis process with demographic studies, district-wide facility assessments, financial analysis, tax impact scenarios, and community input. Roughly 81% of the approved bond funds addressed student enrollment growth. 
 
As a result of the election, Sheldon ISD was able to build a new C.E. King High School (opened in February 2020), Sheldon Lake Elementary School (opened in August 2019), Panther Stadium (opened in August 2019), and a public health facility in partnership with Harris County Public Health (project beginning early 2021), as well as provide renovations and upgrades to facilities, technology, and security. Projects from the 2016 bond election are roughly 88% complete. 
 
Sheldon ISD is a fast-growth school district which means it sees student enrollment growth of more than 10% over the last five years. In 2015, Sheldon has approximately 8,500 students, and started the 2020-21 school year with 10,280. Demographic studies project Sheldon ISD can expect to have student enrollment of more than 11,000 by 2023.

Enrollment on the rise; Demographic study coming in 2021
 

As one of the fastest growing school districts in the greater Houston area, Sheldon has seen an increase of 3-8% in student enrollment growth for the last seven years. This growth is attributed to new housing developments and potential for land development, as well as economic opportunities. With ascending trends in enrollment, demographic studies were conducted in 2018 to diligently stay ahead of the growth. Results revealed Sheldon ISD could more than double in size at build out with approximately 21,000 students. Currently, SISD has 10,280 students.

“It is important to us to forecast our future as best we can to plan ahead for our growth,” said Superintendent Dr. King Davis. “We have enrolled an additional 2,300 students in the past five years, and based on this year’s current enrollment, our growth pattern is continuing to increase.”
