Allen ISD approves new attendance zone boundaries
Map courtesy of Allen ISD - This map shows the new elementary school attendance zone boundaries as approved by the AISD Board of Trustees. The recommendations reflect current and projected enrollment data as well as input from residents.
The new dividing lines on the Allen ISD attendance map were set Tuesday night with a unanimous vote from the school board.
The changes will go into effect during the next school year and could last a decade.
The zoning map is intended to balance enrollment at the district's 17 elementary schools and three middle schools. The new plan will provide relief for Evans, Cheatham and Marion Elementary, which are all currently over capacity.
The vote by the school board completed a five-month process during which the district developed an initial attendance map, presented it to the community for comment and made adjustments in response. The catalyst for the rezoning process was the fall opening of the district's newest school, Lindsey Elementary.
Lindsey is the last elementary school AISD plans to build. According to documents supporting the rezoning plan, Lindsey and new additions at Curtis Middle School should give the district enough room to reach full growth without adding any new schools.
The new map takes into consideration projected enrollment figures for the next 10 years, and district administrators expect it to last that long barring any unexpected developments. The district's enrollment is 20,000 and it expects to add about 3,000 more students before growth stalls and it reaches build-out, or its maximum population.
