​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​2022-23 Proposed Attendance Boundary Modifications – Elementary #44 & Paetow High School

Katy ISD annually reviews its attendance boundaries to ensure the District is adequately addressing its fast growth, as well as student and staff capacity on campuses. Balancing school enrollment across campuses is essential to ensuring that each of our students have access to safe and engaging learning environments.  

What is an Attendance Boundary Modification (ABM)?
Attendance Boundary Modifications (ABMs) help the District to manage growth in Katy ISD. As the District enrollment increases, it becomes necessary to adjust boundaries and open new schools. ABMs enable the District to balance student enrollment at each school.
