San Antonio NEISD Redraws School Boundaries

In a measure to relieve enrollment at Ronald Reagan High School and leave room at Claudia Taylor "Lady Bird" Johnson High School for future growth on the east side of U.S. 281, the North East ISD Board of Trustees approved new attendance boundaries for Johnson High School. The decision affects students currently enrolled in Reagan and Douglas MacArthur high schools. The boundary changes go into effect at the beginning of the 2008-2009 school year.

Johnson was planned to accommodate 3,000 students, whereas Reagan was built for 2,500. Students currently attending Reagan who will be seniors in 2008-2009 will have the option to stay at Reagan, and students temporarily assigned to MacArthur to accommodate overflow will have the option of remaining at MacArthur. Aditionally, the Board is also considering an option that would allow students living in the Reagan attendance area to enroll at Johnson.

The boundary changes for Johnson include all of the current Tejeda Middle School boundary and the following neighborhoods in the Bush Middle School attendance area: Big Spring: Village At Cactus Bluff, Village In The Hills and Village On The Glen; Canyons At Stone Oak; Estates At Canyon Ridge; Saddle Mountain; Springs At Stone Oak; Villages At Stone Oak; Abbey at Stone Oak; and Champions Village Townhomes.

In cooperation with city and county governments as well as private developers, the North East ISD has invested $2 million toward the extension of Stone Oak Parkway and the installation of a traffic signal at the Johnson High School campus entrance. The plan also includes improvements to Bulverde Road.

The NEISD has made a map & details (PDF format) for the redrawn boundaries available to the public. To keep up with news about the San Antonio Area school district that serves your children, you will find regional list of links to school districts in the :Area Info" pages on
