Attendance boundaries for 2023-2024 approved
Following school board approval on January 23, Northwest ISD has finalized 2023-2024 attendance boundaries that will best balance the student populations at schools across the district during a period of unprecedented growth.
With the approval, boundaries have been set for three new schools – Carter and Daniel elementary schools, and Worthington Middle School – and adjusted at other areas facing tremendous student enrollment growth. The boundary approval includes changes made thanks to community feedback provided both electronically and at four rezoning meetings throughout January.
Final 2023-2024 attendance boundary maps by campus level are as follows:
- 2023-2024 Elementary School Attendance Boundaries
With the opening of Carter and Daniel elementary schools, Carter will provide relief for Haslet and Sendera Ranch, while Daniel will relieve Lance Thompson and Justin. Additionally, to better balance campus levels, the attendance zones of Sendera Ranch and Thompson have been updated.
- 2023-2024 Middle School Attendance Boundaries
With the opening of Worthington Middle School, this new campus will relieve Adams and Wilson. Additionally, Chisholm Trail and Medlin will provide relief for Pike.
- 2023-2024 High School Attendance Boundaries
Because of tremendous growth in the Eaton High School zone, Northwest will relieve Eaton, while Byron Nelson will provide relief by taking in a smaller portion of Northwest’s current boundaries to best balance high school enrollment numbers.
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, along with all current high school students. This means the following students will have the option to stay at their current school:
- Students entering 5th grade next year are eligible to remain at their current elementary school.
- Students entering 8th grade next year are eligible to remain at their current middle school.
- Students entering 10th, 11th or 12th grade next year are eligible to remain at their current high school. Students who choose this option can remain at their current high school through graduation, as long as they remain in good standing.
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 1,900 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.
