Pearland ISD Spot Rezoning Information
Pearland ISD is currently experiencing overcrowding at some campuses and lower enrollment at others. Due to this trend, we must consider the spot rezoning of some campuses to balance out enrollment, providing greater opportunity for all children with optimal use of space and resources.
Magnolia Elementary is overcrowded and we must reduce their enrollment numbers. The district is proposing to realign attendance zones affecting Magnolia Elementary and Massey Ranch Elementary. The proposal includes all of the following scenarios:
- Magnolia students rezoned to Carleston: students residing in Ashton Park, Centennial Village and on Hatfield Rd. between Fite Rd. and Mary’s Creek. Park Village Estates could replace Ashton Park in the proposal.
- Magnolia students rezoned to Massey Ranch: students residing south of Bailey Rd.
- Massey Ranch students rezoned to Silverlake/Silvercrest: students residing at the St. Andrews and Southwind Apartments.
Additionally, Pearland Parkway has a new neighborhood being built that is currently zoned to Cockrell Elementary. With the proposed spot rezoning, this neighborhood would be zoned to CJ Harris Elementary.
Zoning changes would be effective in August 2022-23. Incoming fourth-graders from Magnolia and Massey Ranch elementaries who live in areas affected by the proposed rezoning may be grandfathered to remain at their current campus for one year. A grandfather transfer application would be required to continue attendance and transfer eligibility would be required. Siblings will not be included and transportation will not be provided.

If my student is in a special program will services be offered for transition to new campus?
How does my student apply for a transfer as a rising 4th grader or for a different campus?
Why can't new students be moved to a different school instead of impacting families that have lived in the Magnolia Zone?
