During the last FBISD board meeting, it was erroneously understood by many of those attending and the Star that high school students living in Heritage Colony and Lake Colony would continue to attend Clements High School. It was also reported that this included changing an Elkins attendance zone of high students in the Lantern Lane Elementary school zone to the underutilized Marshall and Willowridge high schools. This was not the final action taken by the board for high school rezoning.
Rick Morris, FBISD legal counsel, told the Star “we knew that there was a lot of confusion,” and he also said that the video taped meeting was reviewed before the school district issued its news release, which was sent out Wednesday last week. The following is the correct high school zoning action:
The high school zones approved will allow rising 11th and 12th graders to remain at the campus they currently attend rather than moving to their newly zoned campus; however bus transportation for those students will not be provided. The board approved one exception to the recommended high school changes which will keep 33 students that live in Quail Green South at Marshall High School rather than zoning them to Elkins High School.
