New boundaries set for some District campuses
Changes are in store for students attending schools that will be closing and for the receiving campuses.
Following a series of parent meetings last October and November, SAISD Trustees at their Jan. 12 School Board meeting approved new boundaries to take effect in 2015-16.
The changes are the result of a long-range facilities restructuring plan and SAISD Bond 2010, which includes the closing of Brewer, Nelson, Steele and W.W. White elementaries at the end of this school year, and Austin Academy at the end of 2015-16.
In all, 24 schools will be impacted to some degree by the new boundaries. In addition to the five schools that will close, boundary changes also will impact Hawthorne, M.L. King and Woodlawn academies and Barkley-Ruiz, Beacon Hill, Bowden, Cotton, Crockett, Fenwick, Highland Park, Hirsch, Japhet, Sarah King, Ogden, Margil, Maverick, Riverside Park and Storm elementaries. New boundaries for Cameron ES took effect this school year.
The new boundary changes for Woodlawn are necessitated by its transition that began this school year from an elementary to a PK-8 academy.
Those schools impacted and parents will be receiving detailed maps and information.
SAISD's long-range facilities plan was developed over more than two years by a community-based committee to adapt to the greatly changed enrollment and population patterns throughout the District, and the need to provide students with the programs and resources that the many small or under-enrolled schools could not offer.
Great care is being taken in ensuring that students transfer to schools with strong programs and offerings.
