Rezoning and redistricting a school district means changes are afoot, though officials from across the affected county see this imminent change as a catalysis for positive outcomes.

Those from KISD said holding meetings helps to make sure everyone is on the same page and Belton, as well as Copperas Cove made similar sentiments.

Killeen ISD says as new campuses open, others are set to close.  In KISD a total of five schools are set to close and students will be rezoned to different campuses.

In 2018, voters in Killeen approved a $426 million bond for the school district, which enables such growth, as well as upcoming projects.  

The money from the bond is being used to remodel campuses around the district as well as build new ones.

Executive Director of Communications & Community Engagement, Elisabeth Cox, of Belton ISD  shared

"After extensive input from parents and community members, the Belton ISD Board of Trustees approved new elementary, middle and high school attendance boundaries for the district. The new boundaries are being adopted in preparation for the opening of Charter Oak Elementary School in August 2019, followed by Lake Belton High School and Belton Middle School in the fall of 2020"

Wendy Sledd, Director of Communications at the Copperas Cove Independent School District stated

“While we are always reviewing the most beneficial instructional opportunities for our students, CCISD has not finalized any formal redistricting plans as this time.”

As more details emerge we will keep you abreast of all decisions made.
