Growth & Planning

  • The Royse City ISD Master Facilities Plan (MFP) was developed by a Permanent Facilities Committee in 2016 as a guide for anticipated growth. Triggers for new facilities and school additions include enrollment figures and bonding capacity. In August of 2020, the district successfully completed the Bond 2018 Program which achieved a number projects outlined in the MFP. Two short years later, Bond 2021 was approved by voters to continue to address growth and meet the goals of the MFP. As a result, every school in the district has seen upgrades and/or expansions. New facilities include Bobby Summers Middle School and Ruth Cherry Elementary School. 

    A Bond Election will take place on May 6, 2023 to address continued enrollment and population growth. The plan aligns with the Master Facilities Plan. Visit www.rcisd.org/Bond2023 to learn more!

Master Facilities Plan

  • RCISD Master Facilities Plan for Anticipated Growth

    In July of 2016, Royse City ISD School Board approved a Master Facilities Plan to address anticipated growth and facilities needs in the district for 10+ years. The plan is the culmination of a two-year process that involved a committee of parents, staff and community members. Some recommendations in the plan do not have concrete deadlines and will be driven by enrollment growth and financial capabilities. Below are the 5 recommendations as presented in the plan:

    • Recommendation 1A (Complete August 2020)
      Restructure grade spans to lessen school-to-school transitions for students. The new structure would be PK-5, 6-8 and 9-12. 

    • Recommendation 1B (Complete August 2020)
      Construct a new middle school in the western portion of the district. This would need to happen at the same time as the grade span reconfiguration. 

    • Recommendation 2 (In Progress with Construction of College & Career Academy Expansion at RCHS
      Add onto Royse City High School to accommodate growth. (Since developing the plan, this recommendation has been met by the recent removal of unused lockers and construction of additional classroom spaces at the high school.) 

    • Recommendation 3 (Land Purchased in Summer of 2021)
      Construct a 2nd high school in the western portion of the district. (Long Term Recommendation >10 years) 

    • Recommendation 4 (Phase 1 Complete August 2020)
      Add onto Royse City Middle School as needed to keep equity between middle schools.
