SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) Sherman ISD held its first of 6 community meetings this evening, which focus on the elementary and middle school attendance zone plans.
These meetings are to inform parents and staff of upcoming changes to attendance zones, and give them the opportunity to have their voices heard before plans are approved by the board in December.
These changes are part of the district's Transition 2020 project.
Topics at the meeting include the finalized plans, benefits and how the plans were made.
Parents at the meeting tonight did not wish to be on camera, but say they were satisfied with the chance to voice their concerns and having their questions answered.
Tyson Bennett is the assistant superintendent for finance and operations with the district. He presented the attendance zone plans and answered questions.
"We want parents to come out and provide us feedback, see the attendance zone plans for the coming years, and then be ready to ask questions and provide feedback. We really need that from our community," says Bennett.
These plans are set to go into effect at the start of the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years.
Times and locations for the remaining meetings can be found on the district's website.
