TYLER, TX (KLTV) - The Tyler ISD school board met to consider approval of several key items, including some changes to what schools some students will be going to.
The board approved the redrawing of middle school and high school attendance zones. The changes will cut down boundary streets from 17 to 4 major streets. The board also approved the redesign of middle school programs including Dogan Middle School.
This approval also allows Caldwell Elementary Arts Academy to develop into the first kindergarten through eigth grade fine arts magnet school in East Texas.
Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford explained the plan for Dogan Middle School and how it will be repurposed for the RISE Early Graduation Program.
"Right now the [goal] is to actually not have a school year or have school operational this coming school year that's 2018-2019 and then looking to boot that program into that location in the year 2019-2020," Crawford said.
The board did not discuss what will happen with TISD's Career and Technology Center other than to say it is available to students.
