Trustees to consider Lindsey Elementary attendance zone

Feb 09, 2017 | Community Relations
Lamar CISD’s Lindsey Elementary—located in Firethorne West—will open in August. On Feb. 16, the Attendance Boundary Committee (ABC)—made up of parents from the areas under consideration for rezoning—will recommend the attendance zone for Lindsey Elementary to the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees.

The ABC met Jan. 2 and Jan. 9 to form a recommendation. The ABC also held a public input meeting Jan. 23 at Leaman Junior High to listen to the thoughts and concerns of families living in the impacted areas. After that input, the ABC met Feb. 6. and reached consensus on a recommendation to present to the Board of Trustees. 

The zoning recommendation is based on the latest demographic projections, facility capacity, enrollment, optimizing existing facilities and public input. The ABC also looked closely at growth trends, trying to alleviate overcrowding while minimizing the movement of students to new schools.

The committee will present its recommendation at the Feb. 16 meeting of the Board of Trustees. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and be held in the Board Room of the Brazos Crossing Administration Building, 3911 Avenue I, Rosenberg.
