KATY (Covering Katy News) – During its October 28 Regular Board meeting, Trustees approved attendance boundary modifications for Elementary #43, as well as Jordan, Cinco Ranch, Seven Lakes, Taylor and Tompkins high schools. The boundary changes take effect August 2020.
With the construction of Jordan High School (High School #9) and Elementary #43 set to be completed for the 2020-2021 school year, the final ABM recommendation and Board vote came after four months of community feedback, Board discussion and boundary revisions made to the original high school modification presented this past June.
“I am very grateful that we have parents and community members, who spoke up and helped us flag sections of the ABM that needed a deeper analysis,” Katy ISD Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Ken Gregorski said. “I am confident and hopeful that these new boundaries will help us to balance growth and thus continue to deliver educational excellence and unparalleled learning experiences on all of our campuses,” Gregorski added.
It is anticipated that the ABMs will relieve overcrowding and address the fast growth taking place throughout Katy ISD.
“As enrollment increases, ABMs help us to manage that growth in order to ensure we’re keeping our schools at workable capacities that best serve our students and staff,” said Assistant Superintendent for Operations, Ted Vierling, who also presented the final recommendation Monday evening.
Elementary #43 and Jordan High School (High School #9) are both bond projects that were approved by the Katy community during the November 2017 election. Elementary #43 is located at 6631 Greenwood Orchard Drive, Katy, Texas 77449, while Jordan High School is in the Cross Creek Ranch sub-division at 27500 Fulshear Bend Dr. Fulshear, TX, 77441.
