Proposed Elementary School Zones Have Parents Talking in College Station

COLLEGE STATION - College Station is growing so much, the district is having to build a new elementary school for the overflow of students.

When there's growth and new schools, the district has to rezone.
Many parents are talking about proposed school zones and how it will effect them.

Haley Hicks' son just started kindergarten at Forest Ridge Elementary. He's likely to be changing schools. Under the proposed plan, he will attend Spring Creek Elementary, which is under construction right now.

"I'm just concerned that he might have to go through a little bit of anxiety with that and we really like Forest Ridge," Hicks said, "but I am sure Spring Creek will be just as good."

Parents we talked to say they understand rezoning is something that comes with growing communities like College Station.

Most of the proposed Spring Creek zone is made up of current Greens Prairie students who live in the north end of that school's zone. Some Creek View and Forest Ridge students would also change.

The College Station school board will be hosting three public forums to hear from parents. The dates are:

- September 2, at 7 p.m. - CSISD Boardroom located at 1812 Welsh Ave.
- September 4, at 5 p.m. - CSISD Transportation Center located at 9304 Rock Prairie Road
- September 10, at Noon - CSISD Transportation Center located at 9304 Rock Prairie Road
