Attendance zone meetings for high school, middle school parents set for Oct. 20, 22

Denton Independent School District has scheduled two public meetings to provide middle and high school families the opportunity to review proposed attendance zone boundary changes for the new Braswell High School and accommodate for growth at Denton and Ryan high schools.

The public meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, at Navo Middle School (located at 1701 Navo Road in Little Elm) and Thursday, Oct. 22, at McMath Middle School (located at 1900 Jason Drive in Denton), with Spanish translation available at both meetings. Braswell High is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2016.

Families with students attending Denton and Ryan high schools as well as McMath, Myers and Navo middle schools are invited to attend as these will be the areas mostly affected by Braswell High’s opening. The rezoning, which will take effect during the 2016-17 school year, is necessary as the district continues to accommodate the rapid growth in the eastern and southeastern portions of Denton ISD.

The areas being considered for rezoning include neighborhoods located east of Lake Lewisville along U.S. Highway 380 in the towns of Cross Roads, Providence, Aubrey and Little Elm. Neighborhoods in Denton city limits located in the area south of McKinney Street, east of I-35, north of San Jacinto Street and west of Colorado Boulevard/Woodrow Lane are also being considered.

“These meetings will give families the opportunity to review the proposals, visit with district staff and plan ahead for the upcoming school year,” said Dr. David Hicks, area superintendent. “We value the input they will provide and look forward to gathering information so we can plan ahead for staffing at Braswell High.”

Families that will be directly impacted by the proposed boundary changes will have received direct communication from the district prior to the meetings. Maps of the proposed attendance zones will be available on the district’s website after the both meetings have been held and community input has been gathered.
