Help Feed All Kids
As Dickinson ISD prepares to surpass 11,000 students, we are busy getting ready for the opening of two new campuses in our district. The Lobit Education Village, including Louis G. Lobit Elementary and Elva C. Lobit Middle School, will open in August 2016 on the west side of the school district. To accommodate the opening of these two new campuses, the district has worked with a demographer to develop new elementary and middle school attendance zones, which were approved by the Board of Trustees earlier this month.
Letters will be mailed to parents letting them know which school their child will attend in 2016-2017. In the meantime, enlarged maps detailing the new boundaries are available near the front office at each elementary and middle school and at the Education Support Center. We have also added an online program to our website where parents can search their address to see to which schools they are zoned. You can access that program by clicking just above this information. In the program, you will enter your address in the top left hand corner and hit enter. The program will zoom in to your address on the map. You will need to zoom back out some to see which area you are located and a box will pop up with a list of the schools to which you are zoned.
The district has planned three parent information meetings to allow parents to find out more about the new attendance zones. The meetings are open to all parents regardless of which school their child attends.
Dickinson ISD will be implementing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Magnet Program at Barber Middle School in August 2016 for fifth graders. Students must have met standard on all parts of the latest state assessment, have exceptional conduct and attendance and a yearly average of 85 (B) in academic courses. The program is open to any DISD fifth grade students. You can also find more information about the program and the application process by clicking here.
