Redistricting involves changing the single member district boundaries used for trustee elections. There will be no impact on any of our school attendance boundaries.
Paris ISD is making changes to the single member districts because the Texas Education Code requires a school district to redistrict if data shows existing single member districts have a population deviation of more than 10 percent between the most and least populous district. Census data, gathered every ten years, is what is used to determine those population changes.
Pursuant to Chapter 552 of the Texas Government Code, the public is hereby given notice that the School Board of Paris ISD, Texas will convene in regular session on the 15th day of November 2021, at 5:30 p.m. to receive public comment on redistricting of ISD election, and School Board places. After the public hearing, the School Board will take up for consideration and to take possible action regarding one or more alternative plans for the redistricting of ISD School Board places. The Court reserves the right to take any and all appropriate actions regarding the redistricting of Paris ISD political boundaries, including the acceptance of new boundaries for the School Board places, modification of any boundaries, and/or tabling the pending proposals for later consideration and/or action.
