This is the image for the news article titled NISD Planning to Adjust Attendance Boundaries for the 2021-2022 School YearNorthwest ISD is in the process of developing attendance boundaries for the new Berkshire Elementary School scheduled to open in August. Berkshire Elementary, which is located in the Berkshire development along Highway 287 in the north Fort Worth/Haslet area, is being constructed to relieve Schluter, Nance and Curtis elementary schools.

The district is also discussing options to adjust middle school boundaries to relieve the overcrowding at Adams Middle School until the district’s seventh middle school could open. Middle School #7 was part of the proposed bond package that was not approved by voters in November. The district’s seventh middle school is included in the Long Range Planning Committee’s recommendation for a May 2021 bond. If the school board calls a bond election for May – and it’s approved by voters – the new middle school would open for the 2023-2024 school year. The district already owns land in the LeTara development in Haslet for Middle School #7.

Recommendations for the new Berkshire elementary boundary, adjusted middle school boundaries, and other attendance boundary considerations will be taken to the NISD Board of Trustees on Monday, Feb. 8. The Board would consider approving the boundary recommendations at the Feb. 22 school board meeting. Prior to the school board vote, NISD will share the proposed attendance boundaries during a Facebook Live broadcast on Wednesday, Feb. 10.
