Dozens of students who have been attending Ortiz Elementary will be moving to a new school this fall.
Abilene ISD trustees voted on Monday to update attendance boundaries.
Students who have been attending Ortiz will now be going to Long Elementary.
In all about 40 families will be affected.
It'll soon be time to pack up for some students at Ortiz Elementary.
Over the last four years enrollment at Ortiz has grown by 150 students, getting the school close to its capacity of 700.
The solution: sending them to Long Elementary, which has a capacity of 400 students.
"We're talking about roughly 50 to 60 students being impacted by this move," said Scott McLean, the district's associate superintendent of operations.
According to AISD officials, Long Elementary can take that many more students.
Transportation shouldn't be a problem.
"Students currently residing in those areas are eligible for transportation and they'll still be eligible. Campuses are located probably less than a mile apart," McLean said.
Students in the fifth grade at Ortiz Elementary might be able to finish out their last year there.
Students from different grades will be part of the move.
District officials said people will have a chance to appeal for special circumstances.
Meanwhile, the Wylie ISD board approved raising lunch prices by 25 cents.
While students below high school will now pay $2 for lunch. Wylie High School students will pay $2.25 for lunch this fall.
District leaders said the increase is a federal requirement.
