Katy ISD Approves New 2018-19 Transportation Model

KATY [March 2, 2018] – After receiving input from the Katy Independent School District community, through Your District, Your Voice initiative, the Board of Trustees approved to change the 2018-19 transportation model.  Beginning this fall, Katy ISD will transition to a multi-bell schedule. The 2018-19 transportation model will include four groups that will begin and dismiss at different times of the school day.  Elementary campuses will be divided in two groups.

Grade Level AM Start Time PM Dismissal Time
High School 7:25 a.m. 2:35 p.m.
Elementary Group 1 8:00 a.m. 3:20 p.m.
Elementary Group 2 8:20 a.m. 3:40 p.m.
Junior High School 8:45 a.m. 3:55 p.m.

Currently, the Katy ISD Transportation Department is in the process of establishing routes and pairing elementary schools to determine which campuses will be included in Elementary Group 1 and Elementary Group 2.  Information on the start and end times for these campuses will be presented to the Board of Trustees for approval. The information will be announced at a later date.
