Board of Education takes action on attendance zones, discipline policy

The Houston Independent School District Board of Education voted Thursday to adjust neighborhood attendance boundaries at 10 elementary schools to address classroom overcrowding resulting from growth throughout the city.

The attendance boundary proposals were created in response to state law, which requires kindergarten through fourth-grade classes to have no more than 22 students per classroom. Classes that exceed that number must request a state waiver.

The adjustments were made to attendance zones at 10 elementary schools:

  • Bastian, Hartsfield, Kelso, and Young
  • Highland Heights, Smith, Stevens, and Wainwright
  • Frost and Law

The Board on Thursday also approved the first reading of a proposal that calls for suspensions and expulsions to be considered a measure of last resort for elementary students. Read more here.

Additionally, Trustees approved the first reading of a policy revision that would provide students with more equitable access to the district’s gifted and talented program. Read more here.
