LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A new elementary school is set to be built in the new subdivision of Winfield Coves.
The construction will be part of the 2013 bonds that were approved.
The new campus will be the fifth elementary school to be built as part of these approved bonds and it will be the second elementary built in the north part of the district.
The school is expected to be built by 2019 or 2020 and it will cost about $17 million dollars to complete.
Enrique Rangel with UISD says that they don’t have a name for the school just yet because they weren’t planning on having it open until 2020 or 2021.
Rangel also mentioned that by finishing construction earlier the cost could be minimized by five to seven percent.
