Public input sought on Elementary #24 attendance boundary

Jan 26, 2016 | Community Relations
An Attendance Boundary Committee (ABC)—made up of community members from areas under consideration for rezoning—will recommend the attendance zone for Elementary #24 to the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees.

Elementary #24 will open during the 2016-2017 school-year.

Before making a recommendation, the ABC is seeking input from residents living in the affected area. A public input meeting will be held Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. in the Briscoe Junior High Auditorium, located at 4300 FM 723 in Richmond.

The public’s input will help the ABC finalize its recommendation to the Board of Trustees. The recommendation will be based on the latest demographic projections, enrollment, facility capacity and the best utilization of existing facilities.

The ABC also looked closely at current and projected growth trends, trying to alleviate overcrowding while minimizing the movement of students to new schools. 

The ABC has reached consensus on the boundary recommendation shown below, but it could change based on the public’s input.
