Katy ISD is constantly moving forward and have been forced to add so many schools over the last 15 years to keep up with the population growth here. Most recently, the Katy Independent School District Board of Trustees have approved names for three new schools set to open in fall 2016.
After recommendations submitted by community members and attendees at a public forum last week, Katy ISD says it was able to finalize the names.
Located at 27602 Westridge Creek Land, this new campus will be named after retired educator MayDell Jenks.
According to Katy ISD, the school located at 4535 East Ventana Parkway will be named after former teacher Catherine Bethke.
The junior high, located at 26721 Hawks Prairie Blvd., will be named after former educators James and Sharon Tays.
