Ponder and Boren Elementary Demolition Update
Posted 08/25/2013 06:49PM

UPDATED 10:00 a.m., August 27
Mansfield, TX – The Alice Ponder Elementary School building will be demolished beginning approximately at 9:00 a.m., Monday, August 26 to make way for the new school construction. Ponder Elementary demolition site is located at 102 Pleasant Ridge Rd., Mansfield, TX 76063. 

The transition and new construction of Mansfield ISD's five oldest elementary schools has begun. A 2011 bond election ($198.5 million) was called and approved to completely rebuild the following schools to provide equity across the district:

  • Tarver-Rendon Elementary – opened Jan, 1971 (school originally opened in 1911)
  • J.L. Boren Elementary – opened in 1979
  • Alice Ponder Elementary – opened in 1967
  • Glenn Harmon Elementary – opened in 1988
  • Charlotte Anderson Elementary – opened 1986

The rebuilding portion of the 2011 bond program is a $69 million plan to demolish and rebuild five elementary schools. The bond program also includes safety, security and technology upgrades and other improvements for the remaining 37 campuses in Mansfield ISD.
