Attendance zone meetings, information for new Rodriguez Middle School

The Denton Independent School District hosted two public meetings to provide middle school families the opportunity to review proposed attendance zone boundary changes for the new Dr. Rudy and Rosemary Rodriguez Middle School.

 
The public meetings were on Tuesday, Nov. 1, in the cafeteria at Navo Middle School (located at 1600 Navo Rd. in Aubrey) and Wednesday, Nov. 2, in the cafeteria at Cross Oaks Elementary (located at 600 Liberty Blvd. in Cross Roads) with Spanish translation available at both meetings.
 
“The growth in the area shows us that families are excited with the educational opportunities Denton ISD is providing their children,” said Gwen Perkins, area superintendent. “These meetings will give us the opportunity to gather input from families as we open a new middle school and continue to adjust for the growth in the Braswell High zone.”
 
The rezoning, which will take effect during the 2017-18 school year, is necessary as the district continues to accommodate the rapid growth in the Braswell High School zone. Rodriguez Middle School is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2017 as the second ‘feeder’ school for Braswell.
 
Boundary changes will affect some current fifth, sixth and seventh graders in the area, with current seventh graders who may be affected having the option to remain at Navo Middle School for their eighth grade year.  Siblings of current seventh graders will be able to remain at Navo, should families choose, so long as they are already enrolled at the school or will be enrolled prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year.
