  • Rendering of completed Florence Elementary Status: Under Construction
    Construction Budget: $29,949,883
    Scheduled Completion Date: July 2021

    Florence Elementary School was originally built in 1975 and is Keller ISD's oldest elementary (PreK-4) campus. This Bond 2019 project calls for the completion replacement of the campus on the existing campus site. Existing space on the property exists to allow for the construction of the new campus without any interruption to the existing building. After completion of the new building, the old campus will be demolished.

    Despite Keller ISD's COVID-19 closure, progress continues on both the Florence Elementary and Heritage Elementary projects. 

    Florence's site plan was formally approved by the Southlake City Council in April and plans for Heritage have been submitted to the City of Fort Worth. In early May, the construction manager received bids for the construction of the two projects, but with the instability of the construction market since March, the manager and VLK Architects are continuing to work to ensure that the projects both remain within budget before accepting a bid. 

    Below is a look at the preliminary design of the new Florence Elementary School:
