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 Bond 2018 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. On May 6, 2023 Royse City ISD voters again supported a bond program to build new schools. The plan aligns with the Master Facilities Plan. Many projects in Bond 2023 are underway.
