  • Rice Middle School Fine Arts Renovation/Construction

    What to expect?

    Construction begins in February for Rice Middle School’s fine arts addition, a renovation that was approved as part of Plano ISD’s 2016 Bond Election. The project will add much needed instructional, practice, and storage space in the band, orchestra, and choir areas.


    When will construction start and how long will it last?

    Construction will start around February 25, 2019, with a completion date in August 2019.


    What will the presence of a construction crew look like on campus?

    Construction will be mostly outdoors while school is in session with some work being done indoors during spring break and after school lets out for the summer. This schedule provides the contractor the ability to remain isolated from students and staff, while maintaining the everyday functions of the campus inside the building.


    How will construction affect what is going on outside of the building?

    See the Traffic Plan and explanation.


    We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make some exciting upgrades to our school.
