    NEW SCHOOLS PLANNED FOR KATY ISD

    High school #9 - Cross Creek Area

    High school #9 will be built in Cross Creek Ranch and will help relieve Tompkins High School and Seven Lakes High School. Katy ISD campuses have a functional capacity of 2700 students. By the year 2020 OTHS is projected to have 4,130 students and SLHS is projected to have ​3,643. Without High School #9 all 8 high schools would be near or exceed functional capacity and a district wide rezoning would need to take place to balance out the enrollment at all Katy ISD High Schools.

    Junior High #16 - Cross Creek Area

    Junior High #16 will help relieve Tays Jr High, Woodcreek Jr High and Seven Lakes Jr High and will be located in Cross Creek Ranch. Most Katy ISD Jr. Highs have a functional capacity of 1400 students. By the year 2020 SLJH is projected to have 2189 students, Tays is projected to have 1766 students and WCJH is projected to have 2046 students. With SLJH projected to be 600 students overcapacity the students are greatly affected by early lunch times and not able to enjoy the electives they would like to. Many students are forced to take their 3rd choice of electives. If a new Jr High is built these students would all be allowed to take their 1st choice of electives and have normal lunch times.

    Junior High #17 - Clay Rd. and Katy Hockley Rd.

    Junior High #17 will help relive Katy Jr. High and Stockdick Jr High and will be located on Clay Rd at Katy Hockley Rd. Katy Jr High has a smaller capacity than most Katy Jr Highs with a capacity of 1231. By 2020 KJH is projected to have an enrollment of 1532 and Stockdick is projected to have 1428.

    Elementary #41 - Cross Creek Ranch Area

    Elementary #41 will be built in Cross Creek Ranch and relieve Jenks and Randolf. Elementaries #42 located in the Morton Creek Ranch Vicinity and #43 located at Clay Rd @ Katy Hockley Rd will relieve Bethke Elementary. Katy ISD elementary schools functioning capacity is 1,030. By 2019 Jenks is projected to be at 1425, Randolf is projected to be 1612, and Bethke is projected to be at 1,725.

    "As our district continues to grow, the need for new schools, more classroom space is not a want, but a need. 91% of the proposed 2017 bond funds schools directly...with 6 new schools and comprehensive renovations and retrofits to 61 of our 64 campuses," states Vann.
