FAQs about Proposed Attendance Area Changes for
Atascocita Springs, Eagle Springs and Elementary #28
Q. What prompted the change at this point in time?
Both Atascocita Springs and Eagle Springs elementary schools have exceeded their building capacity. To prevent overcrowding, Humble ISD is building a new elementary school in The Groves that will open in August 2017. Attendance areas must be adjusted whenever new schools open. The district established a Student Attendance Area Committee comprised of parents, community members and staff members. The committee examined actual and projected enrollments and determined a plan to serve students going forward when the new school opens.
