The Comal ISD board of trustees on Dec. 14 will host a public hearing regarding a proposed redistricted map for single member districts.

From 2010 to 2020, the population of CISD rose from 99,164 residents to 161,145, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.

According to state law, the difference in population between the most populated and the least populated precincts cannot exceed 10%. The population differential between the most and least populated districts in CISD is 47.6%.

In 2010, District 4 was the most populated district while District 1 was the least populated district, according to the school district. Now, District 1 is the most populated while District 6 is the least populated.

The current district boundaries and proposed changes can be viewed on the district’s website, and residents are invited to give input about the plan on Dec. 14 at 6 p.m. at the support services building, located at 1404 I-35 N., New Braunfels.


The board is expected to take action on the proposal Jan. 12.
