As the Katy area continues to grow and Katy ISD prepares to open two more schools in the 2019-2020 school year, the board will be deciding on a new Attendance Boundary Modification (ABMs.) The board is expected to approve the ABM this December 2018. However, now is the time for parents to educate themselves on this issue and see if and how it affects them.
Katy ISD has released FAQ along with detailed maps to help explain the need and affect of the ABM. Parents in the those areas affected can also complete a survey now through this November. The preliminary results of the survey will be presented at the September board meeting with the final results to follow after the survey's November completion.
Below is a list of the schools in areas that will be affected.
Elementary Schools in ABM affected areas
Junior High Schools in ABM affected areas
Beck Junior High
Cinco Ranch Junior High
Seven Lakes Junior High
Tays Junior High
WoodCreek Junior High
Katy ISD is opening a new elementary school and a new junior high school in the 2019-2020 school year. The Attendance Boundary Modification is necessary to better accommodate our growing community, especially near and around Cross Creek Ranch, and to help prevent crowding in our schools.
