CSISD Board Completes First Step to Redraw Elementary Zones

The College Station school board has finished the first of seven steps in redrawing elementary zones.

Wednesday was the last of three public hearings where comments could be made on the parameters a committee will consider.

Five speakers on Wednesday included Becca Johnson, who four years ago moved to keep her children at Rock Prairie.

Board of Trustees President Valerie Jochen said after the hearing that CSISD has good schools “across the board”.

Dr. Jochen also said she totally understands the concerns of parents who have been affected by any or all of four zoning changes in the last ten years.

At the board’s next meeting March 17th, action is expected on the parameters a committee can consider in developing new elementary attendance zones.

Proposals will be presented in August and final action is expected in October. It’s the fourth time in ten years CSISD school boundaries have changed.
