Mustang school sites boundary lines will be redrawn, after board members unanimously approved a plan during their regular March 10 meeting.

centennial_revisedWith the district topping 10,000 students, a new elementary school set to open the next school year and “explosive” growth in its northern sector, officials said it was necessary to redraw boundaries, more evenly dividing student populations.

CreekOvercrowding has become a serious issue at the district’s elementary schools, particularly at Mustang Trails and Mustang Valley, Deputy Superintendent Charles Bradley said. According to district documentation, Trails is currently 94 students over capacity, while Valley has 85 more students attending than was optimal. Mustang Creek and Lakehoma elementaries were not far behind, Bradley said – those schools were 24 and 40 students, respectively, away from reaching their capacities. Only populations at two of the district’s elementary schools, Mustang Elementary and Centennial Elementary, were at “comfortable” levels, Bradley said.

Elementary_revisedThe redistricting plan should accommodate Mustang’s expected growth for the “next five to seven years,” Bradley said. It was finalized after a year-long process that included committees comprised of educators, parents and other residents, as well as parents’ ability to review the proposal online and during an open forum, held last week.

Lakehoma“We’ve had at least 12 revisions,” Bradley said.

PrairieView_RRedistricting will only impact Mustang’s elementary schools, not its intermediate centers or middle schools, officials said. About 150 people attended the parent forum and 41 individuals sent emails to the district about proposed boundary realignments, Bradley said. Most people who expressed reservations about the plan spoke about proximity to their child’s current school and traffic issues, a subject also addressed by Jess Schweinberg, a Bitter Creek resident who asked board members to make changes to the proposed boundaries. In the end, the board passed the plan recommended by Bradley and the district’s committee.

TrailsThe move came in a meeting where board members also unanimously voted to purchase property located at 120 W. Forster Drive for $95,000. According to Zillow, the property is comprised of a 5.6-acre parcel.  Confirmation from school board on the lot size was not available Tuesday, and there was no discussion during the meeting for the site’s proposed use.
