Stop Rezoning of Riverstone school kids out of Clements High School. Say no to Horse Shoe shape Rezoning!!!

Current FBISD rezoning plans will send current Clements and future First Colony Middle School students that live in The Crossing I, II, & III, Crossing Cove, The Manors, Parkside, The Pointe, The Reserve, Waters Cove Subdivisions to Elkins high school. Please consider the following points, sign this petition, and support us in this effort to:

KEEP Riverstone KIDS belonging to The Crossing I, II, & III, Crossing Cove, The Manors, Parkside, The Pointe, The Reserve, Waters Cove Subdivisions IN CLEMENTS HIGH SCHOOL.

The main concerns regarding the proposed High School rezoning Option 1 proposal to rezone Riverstone kids out of Clements High School are:

VOILATES FBISD STATED ZONING PRINCIPLES The current High School Zoning Option 1 Proposal violates FBISD stated Zoning Guiding Principle No 1 to To keep neighborhoods and feeder schools (elementary to middle to high school) tracking together, as much as possible. These students go to the same schools Austin Parkway/Settlers Way Elementary schools and First colony Middle school which are feeder schools to Clements High School. These kids are on the same teams and share several extracurricular activities and will be split apart for good. These subdivisions are adjacent to Heritage Colony subdivision of First Colony which is zoned to Clements High School. There is no Chinese wall between Heritage Colony and Riverstone. These subdivisions are well connected and share the same parks, lakes and roads.
NOT NECESSARY: This rezoning Riverstone school kids out of Clements high school is not necessary based on decreasing enrollment projections in Clements High School. The area currently zoned to Clements High Schools is completely built with maturing neighborhood is expected to see decrease number of High School Students. There are much bigger issues facing FBISD and keeping a number of Riverstone kids zoned Clements High School does not reduce the current budget challenges faced by FBISD. Clements High School is high performing school and had shown it can deal effectively with slight over capacity.

PROPERTY VALUES: Property values may be adversely affected for Riverstone subdivisions currently proposed to be rezoned out from Clements High School. Many people bought homes in these subdivisions specifically to send their children to Clements High School. The rezoning plan is zoning out these Riverstone subdivisions and planning to zone in Avalon at Telfair which is on the other side of the Freeway and violates all zoning prudency. This will also increase the cost to the school district and subject student to safety issues. This seems to be an underlying influence from Telfairs builders who are trying to sell homes in this stressed housing market. Consideration is not being given to existing taxpayers in Riverstone who made substantial investments in homes based on the zoning to Clements high school.

FUNDING Riverstone students are already being bused to Clements. The increased cost of busing these students to a school across the Freeway will cost taxpayer more money and will also lead to safety issues that arise with regards to crossing Interstate Freeways.
In these difficult economic times, there is no need to rezone schools that are working fine as is, and which have projected enrollment going down over the next few years. Lets focus our time and effort on more pressing matters and spend taxpayers money more wisely by dealing effectively with FBISD current and projected budget shortfall.
