Katy ISD has begun planning for boundary modifications for the 2021-22 school year with the opening of Junior High No. 17 in fall 2021.

KISD Chief Operations Officer Ted Vierling and demographer Kris Pool from Population and Survey Analysts presented the recommendations for adjusting boundaries to accommodate the new junior high school, located at 25737 Clay Road, Katy, at the July 27 regular board of trustees meeting.

Under the recommended boundary changes, Junior High No. 17 would provide enrollment relief for Katy and Stockdick junior high schools, both of which are projected to be over capacity by 2021.

Some students who live in the northern part of the Katy Junior High boundary and some students who live in the western part of the Stockdick Junior High boundary will be rezoned to Junior High No. 17 under this proposed plan.

“It allows, I think, for a good balance over the next four to five years,” Pool said.




Parents and other stakeholders will be able to complete a district survey regarding the proposed changes from July 28 through Oct. 13, according to the presentation and to a district press release.

Survey results planned to be discussed at the regular September and October board meetings, per the release. The board is expected to vote on the boundary changes at its October regular meeting.
