0

Clear Creek ISD’s School Boundary Advisory Committee on Feb. 11 shared its final recommendations for school boundary adjustments with the board of trustees.

After hearing from 92 residents who spoke at recent public meetings and reading 72 submitted comments and more than 500 left on the district’s website, the SBAC adjusted some of its original recommendations. The final recommendations follow.

Elementary schools

  • Move 471 students from Hall Elementary to the new Campbell Elementary, which will open for the 2019-20 school year.
  • Move 38 students from North Pointe Elementary to Ward Elementary. The SBAC considered public feedback and altered this recommendation from its original, which was to move 185 students from North Pointe to Ward.
  • Move 30 students from Brookwood Elementary to Robinson Elementary.
  • Move 64 students from Landolt Elementary to Greene Elementary.
  • Move 237 students from Mossman Elementary to Hyde Elementary.
  • Move 123 students from Gilmore Elementary to Hall Elementary. After feedback, the SBAC considered alternative solutions but ultimately stuck with its original recommendation.
  • Move 123 students from Bauerschlag Elementary to Gilmore Elementary. Again, the SBAC considered alternatives but retained its original recommendation.
  • Move 51 students from Goforth Elementary to League City Elementary. Based on feedback, the SBAC removed Parr Elementary from this recommendation.
  • Move 55 students from Hyde Elementary to Ferguson Elementary.

Intermediate schools

  • Move 22 students from League City Intermediate to Clear Creek Intermediate by rezoning the Coronado Apartments. Based on feedback, the SBAC withdrew the majority of this recommendation, which also affected Bayside Intermediate.
  • The SBAC withdrew all other intermediate-level recommendations.

High schools

  • Move 243 students from Clear Springs High to Clear Brook High.
  • Move 236 students from Clear Falls High to Clear Lake High.
  • Move 37 students from Clear Falls High to Clear Creek High.
  • Move 39 students from Clear Springs High to Clear Creek High.

The SBAC also noted public feedback to support “grandfathering in” fifth-, eighth- and rising 10th- to 12th-graders into these changes was strong.

According to a new policy the district has put in place and will not change unless the board objects within 10 days, boundary revisions will apply beginning only with the incoming freshman class. Rising sophomore, juniors and seniors will attend the high schools they were zoned to prior to the boundary changes.

Priority consideration for transfers will be given to any rising fifth- or eighth-graders affected by boundary changes who want to continue attending the schools to which they were originally zoned, according to the policy.

The board of trustees will voted on the recommendations at its Feb. 25 meeting.
