• Enrollment Management at HRE

    Updated February 2020 


    Due to continued growth in the area, Heritage Rose Elementary (Heritage Rose ES) is only accepting new students in grades 1 through 5 who live within a two-mile driving distance of the school – and therefore would be ineligible for bus transportation to Heritage Rose ES.  Effective June 30, 2020 and until further notice, all newly-enrolling students in grades 1-5 within the Heritage Rose ES attendance boundary and who live beyond the two-mile driving distance** will be re-directed to Scanlan Oaks Elementary, (Scanlan Oaks ES) with transportation provided to Scanlan Oaks ES.  Kindergarten students inside and outside of the two-mile area will be allowed to enroll at Heritage Rose ES.  Students of any age with a sibling currently attending Heritage Rose ES will be allowed to enroll at Heritage Rose ES.

    Effective June 30, 2020 and until further notice:

    • Kindergarten students who enroll (within and outside of the two-mile area) will attend Heritage Rose Elementary regardless of enrollment date.
    • All first through fifth grade students who enroll after June 30, 2020 and live within two miles of the school will attend Heritage Rose Elementary.
    • All first through fifth grade students who enroll after June 30, 2020, and live outside of the two-mile area will attend Scanlan Oaks Elementary. Note: Pre-Kindergarten is not available at Scanlan Oaks ES.


    **NOTE: The two-mile driving distance (area) is defined as two or more miles from the assigned school as measured through the FBISD Transportation routing system. The distance a student lives from their assigned school is determined by measuring the shortest route that may be traveled on public roads as defined by the FBISD Transportation routing system, www.fortbendisd.com/busroutelocator.

  • A Message on Behalf of the Board of Trustees from Board President Jason Burdine

    February 28, 2020


    TO OUR HERITAGE ROSE ELEMENTARY COMMUNITY:

    Earlier this week, FBISD released an announcement regarding the “cap and overflow” plan that will be implemented for Heritage Rose Elementary (HRE) beginning in the 2020-21 school year. Regretfully, this communication was vague and ambiguous, causing confusion within the community about how cap and overflow would be implemented. At the Regular Board Meeting on February 24, the Board was clear in our intent to cap and overflow in a limited manner and only for students who are not currently enrolled at HRE. I am writing to you now on behalf of the Board of Trustees to ensure clear communication about how cap and overflow will be implemented.

    At our February 24 Board Meeting, we were notified that, due to the overutilization at HRE, the district will limit new enrollment at HRE until the opening of a new elementary school to relieve student enrollment. Accordingly, cap and overflow will be implemented in the 2020-21 school year for all first through fifth grade students enrolling at HRE after June 30, 2020, and who do not reside within the two-mile driving distance of HRE. Those newly enrolled students (after June 30, 2020) who live outside the two-mile driving distance of HRE will attend Scanlan Oaks Elementary.

    The two-mile driving distance (area) is defined as two or more miles from the assigned school as measured through the FBISD Transportation routing system. The distance a student lives from their assigned school is determined by measuring the shortest route that may be traveled on public roads as defined by the FBISD Transportation routing system. 

    To summarize, effective June 30, 2020 and until further notice:

    • Kindergarten students who enroll (within and outside of the two-mile area) will attend Heritage Rose Elementary regardless of enrollment date.
    • All first through fifth grade students who enroll after June 30, 2020 and live within two miles of the school will attend Heritage Rose Elementary.
    • All first through fifth grade students who enroll after June 30, 2020, and live outside of the two-mile area will attend Scanlan Oaks Elementary.


    Unless unanticipated growth requires additional relief at HRE, we expect the cap and overflow to Scanlan Oaks Elementary to remain in effect until the opening of a new elementary school, which is scheduled to open August 2024, pending citizen approval of bond funding in a future bond election.

    We understand that these decisions do affect families, which is why we are determined to ensure you have the most accurate information. To assist with this goal, we have created a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document that is posted on the FBISD website.

    Please be assured that our Board will continue to work closely with FBISD district administrators to ensure the very best learning experiences for all of our students. If the FAQ does not answer all your questions, please submit questions via Let’s Talk.
    Sincerely,

    Jason Burdine
    President, Board of Trustees
    Fort Bend Independent School District
