Elementary students residing in Creekside at Colleyville rezoned to O.C. Taylor

At the July 24 board of trustees meeting, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD trustees approved attendance zone changes.


In anticipation of growth in the southern sector of the school district from new housing developments, trustees decided to rezone elementary students in the Creekside at Colleyville neighborhood from Heritage Elementary School to O.C. Taylor.

Trustees said this will potentially add 80 students to O.C. Taylor within the next five years.


With this change, students in the neighborhood currently attending Heritage have a choice to attend Heritage or O.C. Taylor, but all new students moving into the area would attend O.C. Taylor.


Also, students residing in The Gatehouse who have been attending Heritage will now be attending Grapevine Elementary School.


Gatehouse students registered for the 2017-18 school year by June 2 will be allowed to remain at Heritage, but new families would attend GES.
