Socorro ISD Approves Boundary Adjustments, Campus Changes for 2019-2020 School Year

The Socorro Independent School District Board of Trustees approved boundary adjustments, which will go into effect January 2019 for new students and at the start of the 2019-2020 school year for current students.

“In planning for the boundary adjustments, Team SISD’s priorities are to be good stewards of all resources and to respect families in the existing school communities,” said Marivel Macias, assistant superintendent of administrative services.

“We focused on boundary adjustments that made best use of our existing campuses and adjusted for our new elementary school, while considering the needs of our students and families,” Macias said.

“Our commitment is to provide all students a high-quality education in a comfortable, safe learning environment.”

The boundary adjustments are being made in the El Dorado and Pebble Hills feeder patterns to maximize the use of existing facilities in those areas and to adjust for SISD’s newest elementary school, Cactus Trails Elementary School, which is set to open in the Pebble Hills area in July 2019.

Via a news release, Socorro ISD officials shared, “Team SISD is proactive in monitoring the growth in the district, demographics, and use of facilities in order to be poised to always provide students in all areas of the district safe and supportive learning environments.”

The boundary changes were carefully crafted taking into consideration many aspects, such as staffing, transition periods, student transportation, and potential facility renovations.

During October and early November, the district met with students, parents and community members at 10 community meetings to explain the proposed boundary adjustments and gain feedback from the stakeholders.

SISD also met with teachers, support staff, administrators, and district directors at 27 faculty and staff meetings to discuss the boundary changes.

The 2019-2020 boundary adjustments include the following changes:

  • Hurshel Antwine Elementary School will transition into a middle school for the El Dorado feeder pattern.
  • Paso del Norte K-8 School will become an elementary school for the El Dorado feeder pattern.
  • Sgt. Roberto Ituarte Elementary School will be the pre-k hub school in the El Dorado feeder pattern.
  • The new SISD elementary school, Cactus Trails Elementary School (PK-5), will serve students that currently go to James P. Butler and Chester E. Jordan elementary schools.

The changes were approved during SISD’s regular board meeting in mid- November; t learn more about the approved boundary adjustments, visit the district website.

New SISD School Named Cactus Trails Elementary School, Mascot will be Diamondbacks

The Socorro Independent School District Board of Trustees approved the name of the district’s newest elementary school: Cactus Trails Elementary School.

The district’s 49th campus is being built in the Pebble Hills area and will accommodate about 800 elementary students. The new campus will serve the rapidly expanding east side of Team SISD and alleviate James P. Butler Elementary School, which now overflows students to other schools in the area.

The $28.4 million facility is scheduled to be open for the 2019-2020 school year.

Leslie Thomas, formerly the principal of Jane A. Hambric School, will be the principal of Cactus Trails Elementary School.

Trustees and Superintendent Espinoza also approved the school mascot and colors. The mascot will be diamondbacks and the school colors will be gray, teal and white.

Trustees voted at the regular school board meeting on November 13, 2018.
