With several new housing developments currently in the works within our district boundaries, we will serve even more students as time continues to pass! 

Below is a map overview of the current district boundaries. Yellow circles indicate the plans of new housing additions that have been communicated to Krum ISD Administration as of October 5, 2021. Current demographic studies suggest that homes currently have an average of 0.9 students per household. With the over 11,000 proposed homes shown below, over 10,000 students would come to Krum ISD over the course of the next several years.

How Will Krum ISD address this expected growth?
 
Krum ISD is currently working with a group of community members, staff, and a team from Gallagher Construction Services and Huckabee Architects to explore the anticipated growth in depth. This team is working collaboratively to explore facility additions and renovations at Krum ISD campuses to accommodate this anticipated growth. The Bond Planning Committee will then make a presentation and formal recommendation to the Krum ISD Board of Trustees on whether or not a bond election should be called to address the growth and needs of the district.
