The Denison School Board is set to review new attendance boundaries for the 2014-15 school year, as the Denison Independent School District transitions from six elementary schools to five. The proposed boundaries will be presented at the Board’s regular meeting, which will be held Tuesday night at the District’s administration offices.


Created using demographic data, the boundary draft is far from a completed product. After the Board undertakes its review on Tuesday, the District will schedule a series of campus meetings for parents to provide input.


Also on Tuesday, the School Board is expected to use its allotment of votes in the Grayson Central Appraisal District election to ensure that former city attorney Tom Akins is elected to serve on the organization’s Board. Denison ISD staff has recommended that the School Board put its remaining votes toward the nominee of Sherman ISD, Al Zorilla.


Other agenda items include a review of bids for an extension of the District’s fiber-optic network, the presentation of site-based improvement plans for each of the Denison campuses and updates on the construction of the new high school and the demolition at Munson Stadium.


The School Board meeting is set to convene at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, at 1201 Rusk Ave.
