The district is growing and its elementary and middle schools are at or near capacity, which means every seat in every classroom is full. Proposition A constructs a new elementary school and an addition to Nichols Middle School to have more classrooms for growth.

The new elementary school would be built to the district’s new standards for energy efficiency, safety and security, and modern learning spaces. The new 92,500 square-foot elementary school would be located in the Panchasarp Farms subdivision located behind the QuikTrip on 174. 

The 13,500 square-foot addition to Nichols Middle School would include: ten additional classrooms along with a science lab to increase the campus capacity to 1,000 students.

JISD is projected to add nearly 1,500 students in the next 10 years. Currently, there are 21 actively building subdivisions and 17 future subdivisions in the planning stages. A.G. Elder Elementary School and North Joshua Elementary School are already at or past max capacity as of the fall 2023 semester. Caddo Grove Elementary is nearing capacity and is past its estimated enrollment for the 2023-24 school year (635 students).
