Hays CISD Rezoning Information 2019-2020

  • The following information about the 2019-2020 rezoning comes from the district. Specific information about how this effects Wallace families can be found on the left.

    Dear Hays CISD Family,

    On Monday, the Board of Trustees adopted the new high school attendance zone map that will take effect next school year. To ease the transition to the new map and the opening of Johnson High School, there are some special student transfer and transportation options available. You don’t need to do anything before the Christmas and holiday break; but to take advantage of the transfer options, you  must take action in January. That is when the Hays CISD student transfer application window is open.

    We have created a chart we hope will help answer questions for most of the scenarios that will arise from the map changes. It is online in English and Spanish. Additionally, the new school zone map is online to view.

    The new map can be summarized as follows:

    The current Dahlstrom and McCormick Middle School zones will go to Johnson High School. The current Simon and Chapa Middle School zones will remain at Lehman High School. Barton Middle School will remain at Hays High School and Wallace Middle School will join them at Hays High School. The map also has a small change to a portion of the Spring Branch subdivision, moving students from Wallace to Barton. There are no changes next year to current elementary school attendance zone boundaries.

    Here are the links you may find most helpful if you are interested in or affected by the map changes or the opening of Johnson High School:
