Our Zoning Goals
With more than five percent growth per year, an average of 500 students each school year, MISD prides itself on being as proactive and strategic as possible when opening new schools and creating campus zones that:
- Keep subdivisions intact in an effort to keep neighborhood friends together
- Leverage space at each campus that allows MISD to always be good stewards of our community’s tax dollars
- Support and establish equity across the district when it comes to student enrollment across the district
- Adhere to policies for students when opening a new school.
With fast growth, we may rezone
Due to the rapid growth across Midlothian, MISD currently serves 112-square miles and six municipalities. MISD is currently reviewing enrollment and identify the need for additional elementary, middle and high schools.
Every time a new school opens, the district evaluates its boundaries to balance enrollment. The process takes approximately one calendar year as we review home developments and enrollment patterns, identify possible school zone options, review transportation needs and much more. Below is a standard timeline, but is customized each time the district goes through a rezoning process.
Here in MISD, students attend school based on where they live.
