We have received feedback that many of you are not able to make out your subdivision on the map that was provided in the e-mail that was sent out earlier today. We do not have a map with street names at this time; however, below is a listing of neighborhoods that are under consideration for Attendance Boundary Modification.
If your neighborhood is NOT listed below, then you are NOT under consideration for Attendance Boundary Modification.
Attendance Boundary Modification
It has come to our attention that there are several rumors running rampant through the community regarding the ABM. These rumors are inaccurate and we regret the unnecessary stress these rumors are causing some of our district families. Modifying attendance boundaries is a sensitive issue and accurate information is essential. We would like to take this time to address some of these rumors:
Rumor 1) An e-mail is currently circulating in the community stating that all of the neighborhoods under consideration for ABM will be attending Taylor High School next year.
FACT: The map below indicates in yellow which neighborhoods are under consideration for ABM at this time. While the ABM recommendation to be discussed has some neighborhoods currently attending Cinco Ranch High moving to Taylor High School next year, the district has not considered moving any neighborhoods from Seven Lakes to Taylor. The district is, however, considering moving some neighborhoods from Seven Lakes to Cinco Ranch.
Rumor 2) It has also been circulating in the community that high school students who may be moved from their current high school to another and participate in athletics may need to sit out one year for eligibility per UIL rules.
FACT: UIL eligibility will not be an issue. In fact, the district has been studying scenarios resulting in the least disruption to students. It is anticipated that current high school students will remain unaffected by the ABM. In other words, students currently in the 9th - 11th grades will stay at their current high school until graduation. In addition, families with younger siblings will have the opportunity to attend the same high school as the older sibling, as long as they both attend at the same time.
Living in a fast growth district comes with many opportunities, and some challenges as well. We understand that with an issue as emotionally charged as ABM, there are those who will take advantage of the situation and use it as an opportunity to spread misinformation. Unfortunately, this does nothing but cause anxiety in the community. Thank you for looking to us for accurate information and please continue to send e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can have the opportunity to address these rumors and help separate fact from fiction.
