November 2022 BondAug. 16, the GISD Board of Trustees called for a bond election on Nov. 8 that would fund the building of replacement campuses for 72-year-old Greenville Middle School and 72-year-old L.P. Waters Early Childhood Center.The new campuses would accommodate enrollment growth. In addition, a new middle school would allow for expanded course offerings, including Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes. Sixth-graders would move to the new campus, providing additional capacity at Travis Elementary, which would alleviate crowding at the elementary level. Below are preliminary schematic designs, based on staff, student and community input. The new L.P. Waters building would include a family resource room that would be used for meetings and events. It would feature a commemorative wall and mural devoted to honoring the history of Carver High School, which was the original campus built in 1950 that now houses L.P. Waters.

This summer, GISD held a series of public visioning meetings to discuss design ideas for a potential new middle school and Pre-K center. Attendees shared their input on topics such as building floor plans, exterior design and the best ways to honor the legacy of Carver High School. During the formulation of the earlier bond proposal, a Citizens Advisory Committee composed of 47 community and staff members from across the district, met to analyze current district facilities, as well as enrollment and demographic trends.
