2020-2021 Attendance Zones

Forney ISD Prepares to Open 3 New Campuses in Fall 2021; Attendance Zone Modification Plan

  • On Monday, December 7, Forney ISD Board of Trustees approved the proposed 2021-2022 attendance zone modifications.

    The attendance zone modification plan was presented at the Forney ISD Board of Trustees meeting on Monday evening, Nov. 2.  Two virtual information sessions were held Nov. 5 and 10, and a public hearing on Nov. 17.  The board approved the final attendance zone modifications on Dec. 7.

    The district has 3 separate zoning maps that are independent of each other: (1) elementary, (2) intermediate and middle, and (3) high school.  High School attendance zone boundaries will not change.

    All current 8th-12th grade students will remain in their current feeder patterns, and will not be impacted by the proposed attendance zone modification. The new zone for Griffin Elementary K-4 will consist of only areas currently in the Crosby and Blackburn zones.  All other K-4 elementary zones will remain unchanged for the 2021-2022 school year.

    The plan with maps and a list by subdivision is available on the Forney ISD website: www.forneyisd.net/attendancezones 

    As always, special programs, such as Pre-K and ESCE, are evaluated annually and location is based on enrollment and capacity. Dual language for Kindergarten-4th grade will remain at Criswell, and the Advanced Academics and Fine Arts Academy, currently composed of 1st and 2nd grade students, will remain at Blackburn for fall 2021.  

    The district will also be considering intradistrict transfer applications for current (2020-2021) 7th grade students who wish to remain at their current middle school campus for the 2021-2022 school year that will otherwise be moved to another middle school campus due to the adopted attendance zone modification. These transfer applications must be received no later than February 1, 2021 to be considered. Please note that approval of intradistrict transfers are dependent on available capacity at the requested campus. No transportation is provided for intradistrict transfers. If approved, this transfer would be available for one year only and students will return to their residing attendance zone feeder pattern for the following year.
