2016-2017 Rezoning Timeline 

Rezoning Update

Based on our original rezoning timeline, we intended to bring proposed attendance zones to the Board for approval at the January School Board meeting. However, additional time is needed to respond to questions and feedback received online and at the public meetings held on January 5 and January 10. We will continue to work with the demographer to see if any changes can be made to address some of the concerns brought forward. 

The Board of Trustees will receive an update on rezoning at the January 17, 2017 School Board Meeting; however, the Board will not take action on the proposed attendance zones at this time. We expect to bring a final recommendation to the Board at the February 21 School Board meeting.  

We appreciate your input as we continue to work on bringing forward an attendance zone plan that will maximize the capacity of our current and future facilities as we prepare for growth.

Purpose:
 
GISD will rezone our school boundaries to optimize student capacity at our facilities while accommodating for our district’s student growth. Recognizing that GISD is a fast growth district, our intent is to develop boundaries that will allow us to rezone in a manner that has the least impact on students.  

Goals:

  1. Create attendance zones that utilize the student capacity of existing and new facilities.

  2. Create vertical feeder patterns for all campuses across the district.

  3. Minimize the impact on students and families.


Considerations:

  1. Demographics

  2. Feeder Patterns

  3. Transportation

  4. Future Growth-Projections

  5. Special Programs



Charges:

  1. Establish attendance boundaries that take into consideration future growth.
