News Release
Thursday, February 08, 2018

At the Feb. 15 meeting of the Lamar CISD Board of Trustees, the Attendance Boundary Committee (ABC) will recommend the attendance zone for Carter Elementary to the Trustees.

Lamar CISD’s Carter Elementary—located in StoneCreek Estates—will open in August.

The ABC met on Jan. 8 and Jan. 22 to form a recommendation. The ABC also held a public input meeting Feb. 1 at George Ranch High School to listen to the thoughts and concerns of families living in the impacted areas. After that input, the ABC met Feb. 5. and reached consensus on a recommendation to present to the Board of Trustees. The final ABC recommendation adds approximately 50 students from the Velasquez Elementary zone to the Carter attendance zone. 

The zoning recommendation is based on the latest demographic projections, facility capacity, enrollment, optimizing existing facilities and public input. The ABC also looked closely at current and projected growth trends, trying to alleviate overcrowding while minimizing the movement of students to new schools.

The committee will present its recommendation at the Feb. 15 meeting of the Board of Trustees. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and be held in the Board Room of the Brazos Crossing Administration Building, 3911 Avenue I, Rosenberg.
