With a continually growing student population, George W. Truett Elementary School was high on the priority list of campus needs to adequately house their growing enrollment.
With the support of District 3 Trustee Dan Micciche and the Dallas ISD Board of Trustees, the Bridge Plan approved by trustees in March allocated $13 million to cover additions and improvements at Truett Elementary, including 24 new classrooms, a science lab, updated library, gym and computer labs. The renovations added 55,000 square feet to the school and allow it to accommodate 1,400 additional students.
“These new spaces are just amazing,” said Truett Elementary School Principal Terre Evans. “It’s rejuvenated a lot of people.”
