Buda Elementary School (New Campus)
Hays CISD's 15th elementary school was approved by voters in the May 2017 bond election and construction was scheduled to begin on the campus in October 2017. The campus will serve as the new home of Buda Elementary School and have a capacity of approximately 900 students, serving grades K - 5.
The 115,000 square-foot campus is projected to open in August 2019. The construction cost estimate is $28,750,000 ($250 per SF). The $33,925,000 total cost of project includes all necessary furniture, equipment, site infrastructure, architecture costs, and other fees. Any bond savings from a reduced cost of this project will be used to pay down existing debt, which returns the money to the taxpayers.
