CISD Boundary Realignment Update

The CISD Board of Trustees held its second Board Workshop on boundary realignment on Nov. 12. Trustees received updated draft elementary and middle school realignment plans based on feedback from the first Board Workshop on Oct. 16. The pros and cons of each plan were discussed.  CISD also shared its recommendation to the Board, which is Elementary Plan A2 and Middle School Plan B2. Broadcast video of the Board Workshop and the presentation shared is available at www.coppellisd.com/realignment.

The CISD community can share additional feedback on the process by emailing input@coppellisd.com. The next Board Workshop on boundary realignment is scheduled for Dec. 10, and Trustees have requested additional transportation data and enrollment information at that workshop. Reminder, Board Workshops are held for the purpose of allowing CISD Board of Trustees to receive more information, and discuss and debate pending matters with CISD staff and amongst themselves before taking a formal vote at a later date. However, since no action is being decided or taken at a Board Workshop, there is no “Open Forum” or other opportunities for the public to address the Board or ask questions during a Board Workshop. These opportunities are available at Regular Board meetings during the open forum portion of the meeting.

The CISD Public Forum on Boundary Realignment will be held on Thursday, January 10, 2019, in the CHS9 Auditorium starting at 6:30 p.m.  The district also will host a Boundary Realignment Facebook Live on January 16, 2019, at 6:30 p.m.  One or two boundary realignment models will be shared at these forums. The Board will consider and adopt the final boundary realignment model at its February 25, 2019, meeting.
