2016-2017 Attendance Rezoning
 
 
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: 

Create attendance zones that utilize the student capacity of existing and new facilities.
Create vertical feeder patterns for all campuses across the district.
Minimize the impact on students and families.

 
Considerations
1. Demographics

2. Feeder Patterns

3. Transportation

4. Future Growth-Projections

5. Special Programs
