Pickett, Carver and Mitchell elementary schools, as well as Wagner Middle School students may see attendance rezoning in the 2020-21 school year.

Georgetown ISD has published proposed rezoning for the schools as it plans for the opening of two new elementary schools on the south east and south west portion of the district.

Brian Hallmark, assistant superintendent of operations and school leadership, said the district took into consideration campus capacity, growing areas in the city and minimal impact on students and families when developing the new boundary lines.

Elementary school changes

Pickett/Wolf Ranch Elementary School: All Pickett students will move to Wolf Ranch Elementary in the fall. The Wolf Ranch zone will be expanded to include everything south of the North San Gabriel River and west of I-35. Impacted neighborhoods include Mayfield Ranch.


Carver Elementary School: The Carver boundary lines will shrink to relieve overcrowding. Students who live west of I-35 will move to Wolf Ranch attendance zone. The neighborhoods east of 1460 between the Inner Loop and the southernmost property line of La Conterra to Maple Street and south will move to the new Williams Elementary. Impacted neighborhoods include La Conterra, The Pinnacle and West Haven.

Mitchell Elementary School: The Mitchell zone will shrink where some students will move to Williams Elementary. The main changes will be to the southern and eastern parts of the current attendance zone. The southern boundary will become Sam Houston Blvd. to Patriot Way and the eastern boundary will become Toll Way 130. All neighborhoods south and east of the boundary will attend the new Williams Elementary. The impacted neighborhood includes Fair Haven.


All other schools will not experience any changes.

Middle school changes

Wagner Middle School: The portion of the Wagner attendance zone south and west of Rabbit Hill Road will go to Tippit Middle School.

Tippit Middle School: Tippit attendance zone will gain the students in the Wagner zone, east of I-35 and west of Rabbit Hill Road.

All other schools will not experience any changes.
