Mustang parents with children in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade are invited to an informal open forum where they can view large maps and talk one-on-one with district personnel about the proposed boundary realignment for the elementary and intermediate schools. The forum is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday, Feb. 8, at the Mustang High School Commons. Parents will have an opportunity to submit their concerns and thoughts on the proposed plan in writing. The comments will be disseminated to the steering committee.
Thanks to the support of the community, Mustang Public Schools will be opening its eighth elementary school and third intermediate school for the 2018-2019 school year. The schools cannot open soon enough. The district continues to grow steadily, gaining more than 400 students this year alone. The largest growth is concentrated in the northern side of the district.
To populate the new schools, relieve overcrowding at other schools and balance the enrollment at all the elementary and intermediate schools, the district put together a steering committee to create a proposal for the new boundaries. The committee will review comments submitted from the boundary realignment page on the district website as well as comments from the forum.
If someone would like to submit their comments but cannot make it to the open forum, the proposed boundaries can be seen at http://www.mustangps.org/boundaryrealignment2018.aspx
