McKinney ISD is moving forward with its plan to rezone in 2014. At Tuesday’s meeting of the McKinney ISD School Board, the board members approved the parameters that will be used when determining how the new high school boundaries will be drawn.
The parameters for rezoning are:
- Proximity to the schools creating boundaries that will reduce eligibility for bus transportation services to schools.
- Socio-economic diversity
- Utilization of space with future and current needs in mind
- Boundary stability
- Keep students in neighborhoods intact throughout their school career Pre K-12.
According to MISD, all of the approved rezoning parameters will be treated equally and no one factor will overrule any others when making zoning decisions. MISD will also allow the public to share their opinions on rezoning during public forums throughout the district’s discussions of rezoning.
MISD’s school board and administration will consider all input before officially redrawing the zoning maps.
In September, MISD Chief Communications Officer Cody Cunningham told TownSquareBuzz.com that the district hopes to have a firm rezoning plan in place by January, so that students will be able to register for classes in February.
