 COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The College Station ISD Board of Trustees met Tuesday, December 13.  The following discussions and actions are of note. 


 2023-2024 School Calendar Development Update: A presentation regarding the development of the calendar for the 2023-2024 school year was given by Executive Director for Secondary Education Tiffany Parkerson.

 The Districtwide Education Improvement Council has been working on calendar options during its October, November and December meetings and have solicited feedback from their peers on campus.

 Using this feedback, the committee has reduced the number of calendar options to two and those will be put out to the community for voting and feedback later this week.

 In January, DEIC will review the public input and make a recommendation to the board at either its January or February meeting for consideration.

 Annual Enrollment Review:  Chief Financial Officer Amy Drozd gave a presentation regarding the annual enrollment review, outlined by board policy FC (Local) pertaining to school attendance areas.

 The policy states the administration shall annually review facility and enrollment projection data, including current demographic data, and five-year enrollment and school-capacity projections and present the results to the board.  The policy also states the administration should specifically inform the board of any school that has an enrollment below 85% or above 110% of building capacity.  No schools are above 110% of capacity this year..

 Using the updated demographic information from Zonda, Drozd outlined projected CSISD enrollment growth.

 Year:  Enrollment (% Growth)

  •  2022-23:  14,489 (snapshot date enrollment - October 28)
  •  2023-24:  14,717 (1.6%)
  •  2024-25:  14,973 (1.7%)
  •  2025-26:  15,141 (1.1%)
  •  2026-27:  15,310 (1.1%)
  •  2027-28:  15,466 (1.0%)

 Upon evaluating the data and enrollment projections at each level, the following observations were presented.

  •  Overall, elementary schools have capacity in the next 5 years.
  •  At the Intermediate and Middle School levels there is capacity for overall enrollment in the future; however, there are enrollment discrepancies between campuses.
  •  Comparability of economically-disadvantaged students exceed 15% at the Intermediate and Middle schools.
    Beginning in 23-24, CSHS exceeds 110% occupancy; however, subsequent enrollment increases are projected to be approximately 60 to 100 students over a five-year period.
  • These projections DO reflect the impact of programming changes and a potential enrollment increase at College View HS.

 Based on the observations listed above, the following recommendations were made:

  •  Continue to monitor Pebble Creek and Southwood Valley Elementaries to determine if adjustments are needed in future years. 
  •  Explore other options to reduce discrepancies in enrollment at the intermediate and middle school levels.
    •  Discretionary transfers were allowed from PT to CG and WMS to CSMS.
      •  15 students from PT to CG
      •  9 students from WMS to CSMS
  •  Review special programs located at PT and WMS
  •  Long-range facility planning process is underway to explore future facility needs across the district, including Phase 2 of College Station High School.

  •  President:  Jeff Horak
  •  Vice-President:  Josh Benn
  •  Secretary:  Geralyn Nolan
