After months of research and input, the Alvin ISD School Boundary Advisory Committee will present its findings and recommendations to the school board on Jan. 14.

The fast growing school district is in the process of redrawing campus boundaries to relieve overcrowding at some campuses and account for new campuses as they are completed and opened.

Alvin ISD added 1,118 students in the fall of 2019, according to a recent study from Templeton Demographics, with the actual enrollment coming within 25 students of what the district had predicted. Within Alvin ISD, more than 18,600 residential lots remain, with groundwork already under way on 770, the study says. Both Shadow Creek and Alvin high schools are at capacity. The study predicts that the majority of new residential development over the next five years will take place in the current Pomona Elementary School attendance zone.

The board’s regular meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Tommy King Administration Building, 301 E. House St., Alvin. With the exception of executive sessions, all meetings are open to the public.

The board will hold an informational workshop at noon on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at the Administration Building. After an open forum, the board is scheduled to discuss items related to the Jan. 14 board meeting. No board action is taken during workshops.
