Hello. My wife, baby and I are moving back to Texas shortly. We really love the Southlake/Carroll ISD but can’t really afford anything in Southlake. There’s a couple pockets in Grapevine that feed into the Carroll ISD that we could afford. We’re just worried they may re-zone in the future and cut Grapevine out of the Carroll ISD. Anyone know if this may happen? There’s are a plethora of houses for sale on the border of the Carroll ISD so I feel like these people may know something. Any advice about the area would be great. Thanks!

Once a home is zoned to a particular school district, it will not change. (The legal process to do so is very cumbersome.) Those homes in CISD will stay in CISD. That being said, GCISD is almost as good as Carroll ISD, especially when you factor in the low-income and ESL students that GCISD has, but CISD does not. You really can't go wrong with either district.

Most people say the zoning will likely never change because of the way the school funding works. I would pretty much say that no school wants to give up this funding by allowing taxpayers to be zoned out of their district.

That may change one day with a lot of talk about how school systems are funded....but not easy to do.

But based on your fear, that could happen anywhere you buy right? If it could happen in Grapevine, it could happen in Southlake right?

School districts were drawn long ago, before most of these cities had much to them.

What we have typically seen is the opposite. For example there are houses in City of Southlake (and Coppell and plenty of other districts) that are zoned to other districts....like Keller ISD or Northwest ISD. Currently I believe Carroll ISD has allowed those students if they would like to attend Carroll ISD, but only if they have space...so space situation could change and then they might stop that practice.

Some districts have totally open enrollment. I think DISD has this. They have space, they let you in, doesn't matter if you live in the district.

Unlikely to be school district rezoning where you get kicked out of the district, maybe a new school is proposed or there is something like light rail going to run down behind the houses.

This is where a buyers agent pays off as they work for you, they have to tell you of any proposals or plans about the area.

A regular realtor works for the seller and is unlikely to tell you or try to find out future property issues.
