The committee, a group of parents and TISD staff, met throughout October to consider creating new boundaries for elementary and junior high schools, which were recommended to the board in December. New attendance boundaries for elementary schools in southern TISD were unanimously approved Dec. 10 and will take effect for the upcoming 2020-21 school year, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
However, the board of trustees took no action in December to approve the committee's recommendation for new junior high boundaries, which would take effect for the 2021-22 school year. Junior High School No. 4 is slated to open in August 2021, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
The committee will hold two meetings from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Jan. 23 and Feb. 6 at the TISD Staff Development Center, located at 1302 Keefer Road, Tomball. Meetings are open to the public, but discussion will be limited to committee members, according to TISD information. However, an open public forum where residents can share comments and ask questions is scheduled for Jan. 30 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Staff Development Center.
The new junior high and elementary school—named Grand Oaks Elementary—will be located at the Elmer & Dorothy Beckendorf Complex at Cypress Rosehill Road and the Grand Parkway.
