Demographics & Enrollment
Enrollment and Tropical Storm Harvey
What was Katy ISD's enrollment before Harvey? What is the enrollment post-Harvey?
BEFORE Harvey, projected enrollment was 77,233. POST-Harvey the enrollment is 77,500+. Enrollment numbers are fluid and change daily. Population and Survey Analysts, the district's demographers project that in 2017-18 Katy ISD's enrollment will increase by 2,800 new students. This is consistent with the Katy ISD student growth patterns over the past five years.
project Katy ISD will reach a 100,000 student enrollment in the next 8-10
years. The majority of future growth and
development will occur in the furthest southwest quadrant of the district and
the furthest northwest quadrant of the district.
What schools or areas are multi-family units likely to impact? (response provided by PASA)
We are currently expecting at least some multi-family development in all 4 quadrants of the District in the next 10 years. Multi-family development can continue to happen as “in-fill” for years after the first waves of development have impacted an area. There are numerous complexes planned along the major arterials in Katy ISD., including the area south of IH-10 and west of Grand Parkway, along the Westpark Tollway, along Grand Parkway in the south, and scattered throughout the remainder of the District.
Do suburban school districts get too big? If so, do they ever split? (response provided by PASA)
“Too big” is really impossible to define. There are currently 4 districts in the state of Texas with more than 100,000 students. Katy ranks 10th in total student population in the state of Texas. We’ve never seen a school district split into pieces. We have seen districts absorbed into other districts and/or several districts consolidated into a larger, single district.
