School Boundary Adjustments, 20-21

On February 25th, the VISD Board of Trustees approved school boundary adjustments effective for the 2020-2021 school year as recommended by the Boundary Analysis and Re-zoning Task Force.

 

During the fall of 2019, VISD partnered with Templeton Demographics to conduct a study to project future enrollment across the district, and the Boundary Analysis and Re-zoning Task Force began meeting to review current student enrollment, current campus utilization, and future enrollment projections.

 

The Task Force used this data to create and analyze several zoning options with a focus on ensuring the efficient utilization of campuses while maintaining a neighborhood school concept. In order to achieve this, the Task Force has determined changes are necessary for some current elementary and middle school zones.

See the approved maps below:

Key Points

  • There are no changes in boundaries for 5 of our 14 current elementary zones (Mission Valley, DeLeon, Rowland, Chandler and Smith)
  • There are no changes in boundaries for Stroman and Howell Middle Schools.
  • Four elementary campuses would not maintain a pure feeder pattern to middle school.
    • Students attending Crain and Shields would attend either Cade or Patti Welder Middle School depending upon the parent/legal guardian's home address.
    • Students attending Dudley and O’Connor would attend either Stroman or Patti Welder Middle School depending upon the parent/legal guardian's home address.
  • There are no changes to the boundaries for East and West High Schools. Stroman and Howell students will continue to be zoned to East High School. Cade and Patti Welder students will continue to be zoned to West High School.
  • In total, approximately 450 of our 13,800 students would be impacted by the zoning changes recommended by the Task Force.

Community Forums
Before bringing the recommendation to the VISD Board of Trustees, two community forums were held in February to discuss boundary rezoning and the findings from our Task Force. Below is a recording of the presentation given at both forums as well as supporting documents.
