MOTION XXXX: I move approval of the zones recommended by the rezoning committee as presented in the attached map. The motion was made by Secretary Paul Dorsett and seconded by Vice President Valerie Jochen. The motion passed with five ayes and two nos. Trustee Garland Watson and Trustee Jeff Harris voted no.
C-2. Consideration, discussion and possible action related to grandfathering provisions for new attendance zones
If a student will be in 4th, 6th, or 8th grade in the 2011-2012 school year and has been rezoned, s/he will be eligible for grandfathering. Siblings are not eligible for grandfathering. Students who elect to take advantage of grandfathering must provide their own transportation.
There is an area of CSISD which has been rezoned each of the last two rezonings. In this area are students who will be in the third grade in 2011-2012 who have been zoned to three different elementary schools. These 3rd graders are also eligible for grandfathering.
MOTION XXXX: I move approval of the rezoning committee’s recommendation for grandfathering as presented. Students in 4th, 6th, and 8th grades in 2011-2012 will be given the option to remain at the school where they attended 3rd, 5th, or 7th grade and to include a select group of 3rd graders (currently in 2nd grade) as presented by the committee. The motion was made by Vice President Valerie Jochen and seconded by Trustee Charlotte Slack. The motion passed with seven ayes and zero nos.
Without objection, President Pitcock adjourned the meeting at 9:05 p.m.
