Alert

In a growing school system, the district’s attendance zones will inevitably change to accommodate the growth. As a hypergrowth district, we are experiencing significant enrollment increases in some areas. As a result, some schools are over capacity while others have available capacity. The Board may consider leveling plans to balance student enrollment across campuses and alleviate overcrowding.   The district’s process is to collect feedback from community stakeholders regarding attendance boundary options. We specifically look to include parents from the potentially impacted campuses/areas. 

We appreciate everyone who provided input during the attendance boundary committee meetings and the leveling process.

The Lamar CISD Board of Trustees has approved new attendance zones that will impact Austin, Frost, Jackson, Long, Pink, Smith, and Travis Elementary Schools, which will go into effect for the 2024-2025 school year.

⤓ Board Approved Attendance Zones

En un sistema escolar en crecimiento, las zonas de asistencia del distrito cambiarán inevitablemente para adaptarse a este aumento. Como distrito de hipercrecimiento, estamos experimentando aumentos significativos de inscripciones en algunas zonas. Como resultado, algunas escuelas se encuentran por encima de su capacidad mientras que otras tienen capacidad disponible. La Mesa Directiva podría contemplar planes de nivelación para equilibrar las inscripciones de estudiantes en todos los campus y reducir la superpoblación.   El proceso del distrito consiste en recabar opiniones de las partes interesadas en la comunidad en relación a las opciones respecto a los límites de asistencia. Específicamente buscamos incluir a los padres de los campus/áreas que potencialmente se vean afectados. 

Agradecemos a todos los que dieron su opinión durante las reuniones del comité de límites de asistencia y el proceso de nivelación.

La Mesa Directiva de Lamar CISD ha aprobado nuevas zonas de asistencia que afectarán a las escuelas primarias Austin, Frost, Jackson, Long, Pink, Smith y Travis, que entrarán en vigor para el ciclo escolar 2024-2025.
