Collister Elementary - Update

Built in 1912, Collister is overcrowded and outdated. With multiple portable classrooms and one of the District’s smallest combined cafeteria-gym-auditorium, Collister ranked in the bottom third on all three major 2016 Facilities Audit categories (Utilization, Educational Adequacy and the Facilities Condition Index).

A completely remodeled and expanded school will help meet modern education standards while preserving an historic neighborhood school.


October 5, 2022 Update: CM Company has begun construction of the new Dallas Harris Elementary School designed by CSHQA. Electrical and mechanical underslab roughins continue. Slab on grade is approximately 50% complete. Masonry walls at the gym are 8-12’ high and work is continuing.
