MIDLAND - After hearing parents' concerns, the Midland Independent School District is making changes to their elementary boundary lines.
Students living near Santa Rita Elementary were going to have to attend Parker Elementary this next school year.
The school district held several town hall meetings where parents put their two cents in.
Now, school officials have decided to let the 103 students stay at Santa Rita.
“We heard a lot of comments from parents that was just, number one, having to pass through that intersection all the time is not beneficial for them, having been moved around so much. So the board said to look at redrawing that line, where we would retain them at Santa Rita and looking at our map, Santa Rita does have the capacity to hold that now," Midland ISD Superintendent, Dr. Ryder Warren, said.
The plan is expected to be finalized by the next board meeting in February.
New attendance zones are set to go in effect by this fall semester.
