Sims Elementary School

The 2017 Bond called for the construction of a single, modernized elementary school at the Norman or Sims campus. As advised by a community planning team, the AISD Board of Trustees approved a $25 million investment in Norman Elementary School, funding the complete modernization of the campus as one of 17 new or modernized campuses.

While Norman is being modernized, students are co-locating at Sims Elementary for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years, forming the combined Norman & Sims Elementary Schools — the campus where Stars Shine and Tigers Roar Together!

Sims Elementary School will undergo improvements and enhancements through Austin ISD’s 2017 Bond Program. Sims will receive:

  • Notable technology upgrades including computer lab and network system improvements, presentation systems, and instructional technology for teachers.
  • Upgrades and replacements of security cameras and alarm systems.
