EO’s VA Boundary Option

Vertical Alignment…

Why are We Here?
• • Why are you here? – to alleviate over crowding at CRHS Why am I here and why listen to me? – I accurately and logically represent the data
– Oak Brook Resident, taxpayer, with kids in LISD and RRISD (McNeil and Cedar Valley) – I have 3 Masters Degrees, one of them a Master of Information Management from Washington University in STL. – I am a 13+ year Business Intelligence Professional: • I have over a decade of CXO level presentations and recommendations. – See client list and history next slide • I can objectively look at the data, not just for my neighborhood or elementary school, but as I have shown, repeatedly, The ENTIRE District.

The VA plan which vertically aligns RRISD and stabilizes capacity against growth for 9 years before the likelihood of another HS Boundary Change, and saves Million$ is supported by families in the following areas/communities:

HS Boundary Moves Solved Now and Later (again)
• Realigning Boundaries Back Now
– Repairs unnecessary issues presented after the last boundary decision

• 2008 Enrollment Data, on hand, was overlooked that showed the population bulge in CR that lead to this boundary change needed – WE DIDN’T NEED TO BE HERE
• The boundaries presented in 2009 are still solid, true, viable, statistically sound and accurate providing capacity and stability to the District for an additional 9 years! – The District will again be re-established and stable for years to come and ready and able to handle growth in the obvious areas (currently & with the current proposal this is not the case) – Discontinues “HS Legacies” that should not have been started - The longer they are allowed to continue, the harder and more painful future changes become to families and the communities (rightfully so)

– Safer = No one will cross IH 35
– MS Vertical Alignment is restored for ALL Schools as well as primed for High School #6 in 9+ years – Is Proactive: The capacity is there to proactively prepare for growth & still remain stable/strong

Planning ahead, moving to Next HS Boundary (for HS #6) is practically seamless
– All Elementary & Middle Schools that feed HS#6 are completely aligned
– All District HS schools still thrive and survive and are prepped to handle growth and a boundary change for HS#6 in 9+ years, if/when needed - but in a turn key fashion – No Boundary Committee 5 Needed

Tere McCann’s (CFO, private industry) (School Boundary Committee) Vetted District Enrollment Data

• 12+ years of District Enrollment Data (2012-2024)
– Based on actual students in RRISD in school NOW, by year, by school, by grade (K-12) – Leveraging generally acceptable practices and statistical analysis • “More Accurate” Cohort survival ratios, longer aging and averaging, and believable adjustable growth rates, etc. • The data presented from BOTH plans to the BC by Mr. Flores on 1/12 was inaccurate • That data was used to judge and determine support for/or against each plan • That data is still not accurate today. – District stated Capacity does not include portables (I do later)

District Plan – Guarantees Boundary Alignment needed 2016

9 years likely before next boundary change, even longer with portables, with enough students in 2020 and beyond for HS #6

Mandatory boundary changes for ALL Schools (including WW) Will have to bus kids West across 35. (East side can’t shift any or take it, nor can RRHS)

VA Boundary suggestion 1) Move Great Oaks
boundary back to and reunite ALL CV students at McNeil, include Horizon given ES, MS feeder pattern

2) WB volume to
RRHS & Stone Oak/ Mayfield Ranch back to RRHS to back fill the Great Oaks Students and prep for future

3) Vertically align all
of Grisham to Westwood

VA Allows For Choice:
No current HS students have to move! NONE!

If you are already attending a particular HS and are happy there, YOU CAN STAY WHERE YOU ARE as a transfer and all students in the family will be allowed to stay in the school if the family choses to stay as a transfer (regardless of grade). In addition, because of the previous boundary change the District should continue to provide bus service for 3 years.

If you are already enrolled in HS and CHOOSE to move to the new school and live within the bussing distance guidelines - You will be bussed to the new school. ALL MIDDLE SCHOOLS STAY TOGETHER – ALL Existing Middle School Students will STAY WITH THEIR MIDDLES SCHOOL CLASSMATES and be zoned to HS together as leading Educators have strongly suggested is in the Best Interest 18 of the “Students”.

STAY WHERE YOU ARE
• No one has to move high schools. • Yes, NO ONE • Stay where you currently are enrolled and attending, as a transfer with bus service OR • Choose, as a family, for your son/daughter to go where the boundary change puts them and stay with ALL of their middle school classmates • All Middle School students stay together throughout the entire District

Why is the District Administration proposing something that moves further away from their stated views?
Dr. Chavez’s sentiments expressed at School Boundary Committee meeting -

Vertical Alignment is the best solution for the District, but is difficult to achieve.
“Students who develop their relationships, especially in middle school, need to be able to move as a group to high school, because
think about it, they will be going to one middle school and then we would throw them into a big high school where they would have to reestablish those relationships where as at least at a minimum, when you are moving from middle school to high school the transition won’t be as challenging (if you are together). That is my perspective as an educator.” Trustee Dr. Linelle Clark‐Brown, RRISD School Board Meeting, April 7, 2009

* Split due to last boundary change

* Additional Split due to proposed boundary change

Get Our Ducks in a Row with VA
• • • • You’ve made amends AND given families and individuals choice to stay or move You’ve realigned vertical feeder patterns for the ENTIRE District - Middle to High School You’ve reduced portables and overcrowding You’ve saved $$ for educational improvements teacher salaries, other district employees or infrastructure • You’ve realigned with community support and natural boundaries (IH35 and 183)


You’ve minimalized disturbance ACROSS THE DISTRICT and prepared yourself for 7-10 yrs. – NET ZERO MOVEMENT across the District for all area HS students. Vertical Alignment for ALL Middle Schools .
• Keep CD Fulkes/Berkman at CRHS for vertical alignment & to prep for future growth in Stony Point HS Area with minimal movement later • Horizons now feeding Elsa England and then CV should now go to McNeil • All of Grisham should feed Westwood

ALL Middle school students in the District stay together to the same High School.

Option VA buys the district some serious time (9-10+ years) on The East & The West Side of IH35. VA also prepares RRISD for growth (IF and) when it happens for many years to come in a proactive manner… East OR West of IH35
26

Vertical Alignment Restored
(again)
All Elementary Schools feed the same HS #6 Boundary. The new middle school that goes along with the HS will maintain that consistent vertically aligned feeder pattern as well, whenever that is needed.

27

Vertical Alignment
• • • • • • Satisfies the Boundary Committee’s Charter to “relieve the overcrowding at Cedar Ridge HS”. (The ONLY Item On The Charter regarding HS Students) Satisfies the District’s and Board’s desire to have “minimal student movement of currently enrolled HS students.” Has NET ZERO forced movement of ANY current HS Student Vertically Aligns ALL District Middle Schools to stay together to a single High School. Creates room for transfers, across the District Is a 9+ year plan setting expectations and is fiscally responsible
• • Money saved could be spent on improving educational programs, teachers, employees, infrastructure VA and data show that there is enough data and capacity to follow a 9 year growth plan and not need a new HS, given current and projected growth until 2020 or 2021, if even then.

• Yes, I just said 9+ years. (12+ if you count the other boundaries in plans proposed in 2009 that are still holding true) • Moves Portables not People
