Can anyone tell me where I can go to see in writing the attendance zone of the new high school in Sienna Plantation? I've searched the Fort Bend ISD website and can't find anything. It says that it is to open in 2010, but doesn't say anything about attendance zones.

I was at SP's homefinder center and the person that helped me out is a recent graduate of Hightower/current resident of SP.

According to him, all of Sienna Plantation will get zoned to SPHS (I don't know what the name of that school is going to be so I'm just using SPHS for brevity) whereas before the students were split between Hightower & Elkins. There is also speculation that the medical program at Hightower will get shifted to SPHS while engineering will be at Elkins.

There was supposed to be a meeting about FBISD HS #11 (SPHS) last week, I think, but it's been postponed.

They held one meeting and after that the FBISD board asked administration to come up with some different zoning plans in addition to what had originally been proposed. This was in the Chronicle a while back:
Quote:
The new high school, the district's 11th, is being built at 500 Waters Lake Boulevard in Sienna Plantation area near the Hillwood residential development. Its attendance zone would comprise Hightower High's attendance zone portion south of Texas 6 and a southeastern part of the Elkins High attendance zone.

With the new high school proposal, an expected 265 students in the Vicksburg subdivision area attending Elkins High would be transferred to Hightower while 502 Sienna students attending Elkins would be relocated to the new high school. That plan would reduce Elkins' enrollment from 2,351 to 1,626 students and that of Hightower from 2,649 to 1,796. The new high school is anticipated to open with 1,171 students.

According to sources they plan to vote to make the options discussed official Dec 14. Seems folks in Sienna Point are upset due to zoning.

District officials picked an option in which students who live north of Texas 6 stay put in their current campuses, while those in the Sienna Plantation area south of Texas 6 who attend Elkins and Hightower would be assigned to the new school.
