Norman Elementary School

The 2017 Bond called for the construction of a single, modernized elementary school at the Norman or Sims campus to support students in the LBJ vertical team. As advised by a community planning team, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees approved a $25 million investment in Norman Elementary School at its regular meeting on March 26, funding the complete modernization of the campus as one of 17 new or modernized campuses across the district. While Norman is being modernized, students from both campuses will co-locate at Sims Elementary. In a commitment to reinventing the urban school experience, the modernized campus will include flexible learning spaces, natural light, outdoor classrooms and new media technology.
