Belton ISD Board Approves New District Attendance Boundaries: After extensive input from parents and community members, the Belton ISD Board of Trustees approved new elementary, middle and high school attendance boundaries. The new boundaries were adopted Monday, January 14, 2019, in preparation for the opening of Charter Oak Elementary in August 2019, followed by Lake Belton High School and Belton Middle School in the fall of 2020. Working closely with the district’s demographers, Templeton Demographics, the Administration convened a citizen’s committee consisting of parents, community members, teachers and administrators to study new attendance boundaries. The Attendance Boundaries Committee met five times beginning in August 2018 and concluded their work on January 7, 2019. In addition, a series of three public forums were held to solicit community feedback on attendance boundary maps. The approved boundaries, as recommended by the Administration, keep seven of the district’s nine elementary schools together when students advance to middle school, a fact highlighted by Templeton Demographics as unusual given the size of the district. For high school, the new boundaries follow the natural boundary lines along the Leon River, creating the Belton High School zone as south of the river with the new Lake Belton High School drawing from students residing in the north.
