Redistricting will accommodate the upcoming openings of two FISD schools: Emerson High School, on the east side of the district in McKinney; and FISD’s 43rd elementary school, set to be located northeast of FM 423 and Rockhill Parkway, FISD Executive Director of Operations Scott Warstler said. Both schools are set to open in the fall of 2021.
Beyond the new schools opening, other factors, such as enrollment, could contribute to additional redistricting, Warstler said.
“We will do some additional cleaning up of current zones, if need be, based on some capacity concerns that we’re taking a look at with other campuses,” he said.
FISD will meet with the district’s demographer in September 2020, and the first plan for redistricting will be presented to the FISD board at an October 2020 board meeting, Warstler said. Two weeks later, a special board meeting will allow for community input, and a final presentation will be given to the board at the November board meeting.
