The Tyler Independent School District Board of Trustees has approved elementary school attendance zone changes for the 2018-2019 school year.
The approval comes just one month after middle and high schools were remapped, and this is the first time the district has seen such a change in nearly 50 years.
Tyler ISD Superintendent Dr. Marty Crawford says the change is an effort to balance out the population of the district’s 17 primary schools. He says it will also prevent the need to ask voters “to build new schools in pockets of our city that are experiencing growth”.
No one who has been rezoned for the 2018-2019 school year will be grandfathered in to stay at their current campus.
Everyone affected should receive a letter in the mail around April 1st.
If you are unsure which elementary, middle or high school your residence is zoned in, you can fill out this form for a result. For any individual questions, you can contact the Tyler ISD Constituent Services Department at 903.262.1017.
