Katy ISD Board of Trustees Discuss Attendance Boundary ModificationsKaty ISD Board of Trustees Discuss Attendance Boundary Modifications2018-06-19T00:28:24Z<div class="ExternalClassB0C5400F09CD40EB9CFB739DEF90DF2B"><p>As Katy Independent School District prepares to construct several new schools as part of the voter-approved 2017 bond package, the Board of Trustees will begin considering attendance boundary modifications (ABMs) to help balance enrollment numbers and provide enrollment relief to campuses in neighboring vicinities.<br></p><p>Katy ISD is currently building two new campuses, Junior High #16 (southwest quadrant) and Elementary #42 (northwest quadrant) which are set to open in the fall of 2019-20.  During tonight's Work Study meeting, Chief of Operations Lee Crews presented trustees with preliminary ABM options to consider.  These options address enrollment numbers at campuses including Bethke, Hutsell, King and Winborn elementary schools; and Beck, Cinco Ranch, Seven Lakes, Tays and WoodCreek junior highs.</p><p>"The ABM options presented tonight were collaboratively drafted and the district is allocating additional time to hear from our community," said Chief of Operations Lee Crews.  "A final recommendation will be presented to the Board of Trustees in December 2018 and the district hopes to begin notifying families shortly after approval of the new boundaries," added Crews. </p><p>​From June 20 through November 30, parents who could potentially be impacted are asked to provide feedback on these preliminary options through a survey that will be available via email and online.  Receiving the survey does not necessarily mean a child in that household will be effected by the ABM.  Preliminary outcomes of the survey will be reported to the Board of Trustees during the September 2018 Work Study meeting.  For more information and FAQs, click on the <a href="/abm/Pages/ABM.aspx">Katy ISD ABM webpage.</a> </p></div>
