With the upcoming opening of unnamed “Elementary 33” in fall 2020, Klein ISD is preparing to make zoning changes for the upcoming school year.

Public zoning committee meetings to discuss these changes were held by KISD on Oct. 30 and Nov. 4, during which seven rezoning options were presented to the public and the board of trustees. To view the rezoning presentation, click here.

“Klein has been a fast-growth school district for over 20 years and as such, must rezone from time to time for the opening of a new school or to balance enrollment in existing schools,” said Robert Robertson, KISD associate superintendent of facility and school services, in an email.

Based on which zoning option district officials approve, the following elementary schools could be affected by the rezoning: Benignus, Blackshear, Brill, Ehrhardt, Hassler, Kohrville, Krahn, Kuehnle, Mahaffey, Mittelstadt, Schultz, Theiss and Zwink.

"In addition to those listed on the previously presented options, there could be other [schools affected] as the preferred option is developed and programs are reviewed," Robertson said.


The district considers data such as projected home construction and campus growth when creating rezoning plans, according to the website. Other factors considered include the location of natural boundaries, transportation concerns and projected enrollment capacities of existing campuses, among others.

A draft proposal and report of the zoning process will be presented at the next board meeting, Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. The proposal will then be posted online for public feedback and may then be revised by the district.

“Our open zoning process allows for participation by our parents and community members,” Robertson said. “We believe that this participation and opportunity for input is critical in coping with the change and transitioning students to new learning environments.”

A final recommended zoning plan will be presented for the board’s approval at the Feb. 10 board meeting.
