BELTON (January 15, 2014) Belton ISD administrators have submitted their recommendations for new middle school attendance boundaries to the Belton School Board, which will consider the proposed changes Monday in preparation for the opening of North Belton Middle School next fall.
The proposal would keep students in seven of the district’s nine elementary attendance zones together when they transition to middle school, which the district said is an improvement from the district’s current boundaries, which would keep two of the district’s elementary zones together for the 2014-2015 school year.
The proposed plan calls for middle school students in next year’s elementary attendance zones for Leon Heights, Miller Heights, Pirtle, Southwest east of Main Street, and Tarver south of West Adams Avenue to attend Lake Belton Middle School.
Students zoned for High Point, Lakewood and Tarver north of West Adams Avenue would attend North Belton Middle School, the district said.
Students zoned for Chisholm Trail, Sparta and Southwest west of Main Street would attend South Belton Middle School, the district said.
“The map that we are recommending to the board is the result of an open and inclusive process,” said Dr. Susan Kincannon, Belton ISD Superintendent.
“We listened when parents told us that they wanted their children to go to middle school with the rest of their elementary school, and this map reflects that,” she said.
