The Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees continued their discussion of rezoning the elementary and middle schools that feed into Flower Mound High School at a meeting Monday night at the Bolin Administration Building.
Parents who addressed the board did not hold back when voicing their opinions on why they think the current proposal is flawed and what should be done to fix it.
“The rezoning process has been flawed from the beginning…” said one parent addressing the board, making it apparent that proximity seems to be one of the main agreed-upon issues among those who attended the meeting.
Other concerns raised by parents related to safety, especially the possibility of children walking and biking across busy traffic areas like Morriss Rd., FM 2499, Flower Mound Rd. and Bruton Orand.

Many participants asked the board to take a step back and look carefully into long-term solutions and find a more creative way to deal with balancing the student population.
LISD Board of Trustees President Carol Kyer said she thought the meeting went well.
“It’s great that they [parents] know they can speak to their board. They’re concerned for their children and I can’t blame them,” said Kyer.
Kyer said that the board has scheduled an additional workshop on March 28 where more discussion will take place between the members concerning the issues brought forth.
According to Kyer, the board is still on track to make a final decision on April 8.
