New Age Design For New TISD Campus

It may have the same name, but the new campus for Bell Elementary will look nothing like the old one. Bell was one of the schools set to be rebuilt after the TISD bond passed. Initial drawings and floor plans for the new building are out.

Architects and designers working on the plans say there are dramatic security, technology, and layout changes from the old campus, especially when it comes to access to the school.

Designers say the changes will keep kids safer and lend the campus to extra curricular activities. Workers will break ground and start construction on the new campus this summer, across from the old school.

They say students will be in the new and improved Bell Elementary the summer of '06.
