2016-17 Denton ISD Rezoning
With the opening of Braswell High School and Bell Elementary School, Denton ISD will adjust its school attendance zones for the coming 2016-17 school year at both the secondary and elementary levels.
Two meetings to discuss the proposed attendance zone changes at the secondary level took place in October, with Navo Middle School hosting a meeting on Oct. 20 and McMath Middle School hosting the other on Oct. 22. Elementary rezoning meetings took place in November, with Paloma Creek Elementary hosting a meeting on Nov. 3 and Pecan Creek Elementary hosting the second meeting on Nov. 5.
Following public input, a proposal was made to the Board of Trustees on Tuesday, Nov. 15 for consideration. To view the presentation click here
Families with students attending Denton and Ryan high schools as well as McMath, Myers and Navo middle schools will be the areas mostly impacted by Braswell High’s opening. The rezoning, which will take effect at the start of 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.
Families with students attending Paloma Creek and Providence elementary schools will primarily be impacted by rezoning in the eastern portion of Denton ISD as a result of the opening of Bell Elementary. Though not inhabited by any Denton ISD students, a portion of Savannah Elementary's current attendance zone is also proposed to move to Paloma Creek Elementary to make room for future growth.
Additionally, in the southern portion of Denton ISD, students at Pecan Creek and Stephens elementary schools will be impacted by boundary changes to make room for future growth and make transportation safer by moving students to a school that isn't across a busy interstate. These changes will move fewer than 60 current students from Pecan Creek to Stephens and about 70 students from Stephens to Hawk Elementary.
