Approved 2024-2025 Boundaries
2024-2025 Attendance Boundaries Approved
Following school board approval on January 8, Northwest ISD has finalized 2024-2025 attendance boundaries that will best balance the student populations at schools across the district during a period of rapid growth.
With the approval, boundaries have been set for a new elementary school – Alan & Andra Perrin Elementary School – and adjusted at other areas facing tremendous student enrollment growth. The boundary approval includes changes made to the initial recommendation thanks to community feedback provided both electronically and at a rezoning meeting in December.
Final 2024-2025 attendance boundary changes are as follows:
- 2024-2025 Elementary School Attendance Boundaries
With the opening of Perrin Elementary School, the new campus will provide relief for Love and Justin elementary schools. Additionally, to better balance campus levels, changes to Love will relieve Hatfield. (In the linked map, the Hatfield boundary is in pink, the Love boundary is in teal, the Perrin boundary is in light yellow and the Justin boundary is in brick red.)
Students affected by rezoning and entering the final grade-level year at their campus will have the option to stay at their current campus, if desired. Because only elementary schools are rezoned this year, this means students entering 5th grade next year are eligible to remain at their current elementary school if they are affected by rezoning.
Students who choose to remain at their current school will not receive district-provided transportation (except in cases of SPED accommodations), and younger siblings will not be eligible to remain. Northwest ISD will email these families a link to submit a transfer, open from February 1 to 15, to remain at their current school. All other transfer applications will be accepted from April 1 to May 15.
Once records are available for which students intend to remain at their current schools, families of students moving to new schools can expect communication providing an opportunity to get to know their new campuses.
As the fastest-growing school district in North Texas, Northwest ISD anticipates enrollment growth of about 1,400 to 1,900 students per year in the coming years. Attendance boundary adjustments are necessary to create enrollment zones for new campuses as well as balance enrollment at existing campuses to maintain safe and effective learning environments.
Update to Proposal
Following feedback from families of students affected by proposed elementary rezoning, Northwest ISD will present an additional option for the school board to consider in the rezoning proposal for the 2024-2025 school year. After reviewing the data with the district’s demographer, district leaders will also present an option to keep the entirety of the Champions Circle community together at Hatfield Elementary School.
Northwest ISD leaders will support this new option when presented to the school board for a vote at its Monday, January 8, meeting. Keeping the Champions Circle community together is the only additional option for board consideration from the existing proposal seen at www.nisdtx.org/rezoning.
We greatly appreciate the feedback provided by families through email, Facebook Live, the community meeting and other outlets. Family participation in our schools and district is a vital component of student success, and we’re thankful for your involvement.
As the fastest-growing school district in North Texas, Northwest ISD annually faces an overall enrollment increase of about 1,400 to 1,600 new students a year. With the opening of Alan & Andra Perrin Elementary School in August 2024, Northwest ISD will rezone attendance boundaries at the elementary level for the 2024-2025 school year.
These changes are also necessary to best balance campus enrollments to maintain safe and effective learning environments as well as to prepare for new secondary feeder patterns in the coming years. When considering new boundaries, the district always attempts to minimize future boundary changes and their effects on students and families.
Please see the red section below for proposed changes at the elementary level. These changes will provide relief for existing campuses that are over or nearing capacity while also providing the best stability in the coming years.
Northwest ISD will hold a video walkthrough of the proposed attendance boundary changes during a Facebook Live session at 6 p.m. Monday, December 18. The walkthrough will be available on the district's Facebook page, with questions taken following the presentation. In addition to proposed 2024-2025 elementary attendance boundaries, the presentation will forecast areas affected by the opening of Middle School #8 and High School #4 as a glimpse of potential attendance zones for these schools.
Standard Practice Recommendations for Board Approval
The following aspects are standard district practice when rezoning elementary attendance boundaries that are recommended for board approval with each rezoning.
- Students starting 5th grade the year rezoning takes effect would be eligible to remain at their existing elementary school.
- Students choosing to remain would not receive bus transportation, and younger siblings would not be eligible.
Opportunities for Feedback
Northwest ISD welcomes families at affected schools to provide their feedback by emailing email@example.com and/or providing input at the scheduled rezoning meeting. Families at affected schools can attend the rezoning meeting on December 20 at Love Elementary School. The meeting is scheduled to last from 6 to 6:30 p.m., though district leaders will remain on site for additional questions.
Scheduled Vote by School Board
The Northwest ISD Board of Trustees are scheduled to vote on final boundary changes at their regular meeting on Monday, January 8.
Proposed Elementary School Boundary Changes
Our district will open Alan & Andra Perrin Elementary School in August 2024, which means a new boundary zone must be created for this campus. With this change, some balancing will affect three current elementary schools: Hatfield, Love and Justin.
- Perrin Elementary School's opening will primarily provide relief for Love Elementary School, as the biggest portion of Perrin's zone would come from current Love zone. A small portion of Justin Elementary School would also be rezoned to Perrin to provide relief.
- A portion of Hatfield Elementary School would be rezoned to Love Elementary School to provide stability for future elementary school zones. Based on current home construction and upcoming housing developments, Hatfield will see sustained growth in the coming years, while the district believes Love would be unlikely to see rezoning for the foreseeable future with this change. This change would provide more stability for Hatfield's proposed boundaries for a longer period.
