Bob is always looking for news about Katy Texas and the surrounding areas. Please e-mail me at bobgilbert2003@msn.com with any news you may feel needs a forum!

The Katy Independent School District will vote on a measure to rezone several local area neighborhoods from one high school area to another and the vote is expected on February 22, 2010. The bottom line is that Seven Lakes High School is predicted to have too many students and James Taylor is expected to not have enough. This was explained to a very small group of parents at a workshop held on Febraury 4, 2010. Elementary schools should have no effect as these schools are local to the various neighborhoods. Junior High Schools, however, will have to be affected as a Junior High School in KISD typically feeds one specific Katy High School and some neighborhoods will be changing which High School students will be attending.

People attending the workshop complained bitterly that there was a lack of information spread through the community. I hunt for local Katy  news to write about and I just learned of this late last week and wanted to get more data before I wrote a blog and made people upset. Marcy Canady, assistant superintendent for school and community engagement stated that a response to everyone's voiced concerns would be posted on the dostricts web site as soon as possible.

Per the current recommendation all current students would be grandfathered to stay where they are through graduation. If this actually happens that is good news for the children and parents. Katy District enrollment is expected to exceed 60,000 students!!!

Here are the changes by what is termed "land use zones" with the corresponding neighborhhood's shown:

Moving from Cinco Ranch to Taylor are:

Luz 66 - Highland Trails, Kelliwood Enclave, Kelliwood Gardens, Kelliwood Lakes, Kelliwood Place, Kelliwood Trails, Lake Forest and Lakes of Buckingham.

Luz 71A - Alexan Downs Apart, Kelliwood Pointe, Kelliwood Terrace, Willow Park Greens

Luz 71B - Meadow Ridge

Luz 71C - Park Hollow, Park View

Moving from Seven Lakes to Cinco Ranch are:

Luz 76 C - Bayou Crossing

Luz 77A - Fairways at Kelliwood, Greens at Willowfork,, Kelliwood Greens

Luz 77B - Arbor at Willlow Fork

Luz 79B - Canterbury Village, Meadow Glen, Residences at Cinco Ranch,South Park,Summer Point

Luz 79 C - Canyon Gate

luz 79 D - Estates at Willowfork Greens, Kelliwood Greens, Kelliwood Park

Luz 79 F - Saddlebrook Crossing

Luz 79G - Park Trace

If any of you out there think politics will not be part of the final vote/decision you are probably INCORRECT!!!! Don't hold your breath regarding passing of the Grandfathering in of existing students proposal.

If you want to see in person one of the main reasons the rezoning is becoming necessary just drive out Fry Road to Spring Green and take a right and go past the model home park on the left for Cinco Ranch and you find new homes being built at a rapid rate in all directions and all of those homes are zoned for Seven Lakes... GOOD LUCK if this affects you and your student(s)...
