KATY (Covering Katy News) – The Katy School Board was presented with attendance boundary modification options Monday night as construction is underway for Elementary 43 and High School 9, two new schools being funded from the 2017 voter-approved bond program.
Elementary 43 is located in the northwest quadrant of Katy ISD, and High School 9 is in the southwest quadrant. Both are set to open in the fall of 2020.
During the work study meeting, Chief Operations Officer Lee Crews, along with population and survey analysts, presented trustees with a preliminary ABM option for each of the schools. Bethke Elementary would be impacted with the opening of Elementary 43, and Katy, Tompkins, and Seven Lakes high schools would see enrollment relief due to the opening of High School 9.
“Input from families who could potentially be affected is highly valued during this process. For this reason, we are asking parents and stakeholders to provide survey feedback, beginning the week of June 18 through September,” said Chief Operations Officer Lee Crews. “It is anticipated that a decision on the Attendance Boundary Modification for each of these schools will be made in October,” added Crews.
Receiving the survey does not necessarily mean a child in that household will be impacted by the ABM. For more information and FAQs, click on the Katy ISD ABM webpage.
