With students continuing to pour into the Alvin Independent School District at a rate of approximately 1,000 per school year, the district is working to construct six new schools in addition to a new district stadium/transportation complex.
Daniel Combs, a district assistant superintendent, said Alvin ISD has been growing steadily, particularly in recent years. This current school year he said approximately 1,500 children joined the district.
