Angleton ISD is considering new boundaries for their elementary school students next year because of changes at the junior high and high school levels, as well as growth in the district.
When the new high school opens next year, the old high school will become the junior high campus and the current middle school will become an elementary.
The committee that produced these proposed boundaries made their decisions based on four goals: “maintaining the neighborhood school concept, making good use of current facilities, ensuring that campuses have sufficient room for growth, and maintaining an equitable socio-economic balance between the campuses.”
Committee member and 8th grade English teacher Missy Adams said, “We addressed criteria that we believed was important to our community.”
Another committee member, Carol Trevino, said “I particularly like that the proposed boundaries will cut down considerably on the length of some bus routes, which is wonderful.”
Parent and committee member Lynette Roye expressed a positive view of the changes, despite the fact that her child will be among those moving to a new school. “Kids adjust easier than we think. We as parents have to make that adjustment too, but if our children can do it, so can we.”
The committee hopes to present their proposal to the school board in September.
