Bond Referendum

An Attendance Boundary Committee (ABC) has been established. The committee is composed of parents and principals serving the Conroe H.S. feeder pattern along with CISD administrators. This committee will soon begin the process of developing zoning scenarios for the junior high schools in Conroe. It is important to the District to obtain the input of the parents and community on these various zoning scenarios. Therefore, the District is providing multiple opportunities for anyone interested to attend the Zoning Information Overview and Community meetings. Each meeting is offered three times for convenience. Much of the information to be presented at the Zoning Information Overview will be available on CISD’s website at Please see attached flyers for more details.
