Attendance Zone Update: Judy K. Miller Elementary

An Attendance Zone Review for Mansfield ISD elementary schools began March 2016 in response to the annual demographic report presented during the January 2016 School Board meeting. Willing parties were selected at random to be part of the review committee, and public meetings were held to present the information.

The review addressed projected future growth, campus overcrowding and the effective use of our buildings in order to define Judy K. Miller’s attendance zone for the 2017-2018 school year.

The attendance boundary (see final map below) was determined at the April 2016 School Board meeting. Judy K. Miller Elementary will open as its own campus in the 2017-18 school year.
