INITIAL PLAN CHOSEN The rezoning plan chosen by Tomball ISD requires students from Creekside Park to cross Kuykendahl Road if they are walking or biking to school. KEY Creekview zone 1 Creekview Elementary school Timber Creek zone 2 Timber Creek Elementary school
TOMBALL ISD The rezoning plan devised for Tomball ISD for The Woodlands area, Plan A, will be adopted for the 2022-23 school year, TISD Chief Operating Officer Steven Gutierrez said during a workshop meeting May 9. The district has been considering boundary changes affecting Creekview, Creekside Forest and Timber Creek elementary schools to alleviate overcrowding at Creekview Elementary. Superintendent Martha Salazar-Zamora previously said Creekview Elementary is at 115% capacity. Plan A sends some Creekside Park students at Creekview Elementary to Timber Creek Elementary on the opposite side of Kuykendahl Road from their homes. Plan B, which was not adopted, would have sent students from a differ- ent area across the road. “All the plans that were proposed, even the counter plans proposed by the largest community impacted, had groups of students still crossing Kuykendahl Road,” Gutierrez said during the meeting. Gutierrez said Creekview’s capacity will not drop below 100% until the 2026-27 school year, when the new ele- mentary school funded by the district’s 2021 bond package opens at the Tomball Innovation Center at Hufsmith-Kohr- ville Road and FM 2920.
