Meeting information from the proposed change to Myers Middle School attendance zone
Information from the meeting to change to Myers Middle School attendance zone
The Denton Independent School District hosted a public meeting to provide middle school families the opportunity to review proposed attendance zone boundary changes from Myers Middle School to McMath Middle School on Thursday, Nov. 10.
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 Lake Cities area and southeastern portion of the district. Students that reside in the area proposed for boundary changes will have a shorter commute to school and be more consistently aligned with their high school zone.
“As Denton ISD continues to grow, we want to maintain the best educational opportunities for our students and sometimes that requires adjustments to school zones that are already established,” said Dr. Daniel Lopez, area superintendent. “These meetings will give us the opportunity to gather input from families as we continue to adjust for the growth and keep our schools and class sizes more manageable across the district.”
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 Myers Middle School for their eighth grade year. Siblings of current seventh graders will be able to remain at Myers, 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.
Maps of the proposed attendance zones will be available on the district’s website at www.dentonisd.org/parents after the both meetings have been held and community input has been gathered. To view the presentation click here
