Demographics & Enrollment
What is Katy ISD's enrollment ?
Enrollment numbers are fluid and change daily. Current (2020-21) District enrollment is close to 85,000 students. This is consistent with the Katy ISD student growth patterns over the past five years.
The district has worked with Population and Survey Analysts (PASA) for more than two and a half decades. The organization’s enrollment projections have been 99% accurate throughout this time period. PASA demographers project Katy ISD will reach a nearly 100,000 student enrollment in the next 5 years (2026). The majority of future growth and development will occur in the northwest quadrant of the district.
What schools or areas are multi-family units likely to impact? (response provided by PASA)
We are currently expecting at least some multi-family development in all four quadrants of the District in the next 10 years. Multi-family development can continue to happen for years after the first waves of development have impacted an area. There are numerous complexes planned along the major arterials in Katy ISD., including the area south of IH-10 and west of Grand Parkway, along the Westpark Tollway, along Grand Parkway in the south, and scattered throughout the remainder of the District.
Do suburban school districts get too big? If so, do they ever split? (response provided by PASA)
Too big is really impossible to define. There are currently 4 districts in the state of Texas with more than 100,000 students. Katy ranks within the top 7 in terms of total student population in the state of Texas. We've never seen a school district split into pieces. We have seen districts absorbed into other districts and/or several districts consolidated into a larger, single district.
