Midland ISD Asks Citizens To Weigh In On Boundary Changes
A couple of Midland secondary schools are overcrowded while others are not, so the school district is looking to change boundaries to help with the overcrowding.
According to NewsWest 9, the boundaries would affect the junior high schools and senior high schools. The junior high schools have an overcrowding problem with Goddard and Abell being overcrowded by almost 200 students, while Alamo and San Jacinto are not overcrowded at all.
In the high school ranks Midland High is overcrowded by more than 200 students where Lee High is only overcrowded by less than 20.
The proposal would mean some students would be going to a different school next year to help with the overcrowding issue.
With that being said, MISD would like to hear form parents about the proposed boundary changes and get input from the public.
There will be two meetings on the issue, the first will be at Abell Jr. High on March 7, 2018 from 5:30-6:30. The second meeting will be March 8, 2018 at Alamo Jr. High.
