This past October, the community of Anna took part in two surveys presented by Anna ISD. The surveys were developed to include the community in the process of naming Anna’s third elementary school and to seek input on the new attendance boundary lines needed for the district.
The Anna ISD Board of Trustees were presented the results from these surveys, along with data from Templeton Demographics. At the December 15, 2016 School Board meeting, the AISD Board of Trustees proudly announced the naming of the newest school in Anna as Judith Lindsey Harlow Elementary. In addition, the Board approved Plan One as the attendance boundary lines for AISD elementary campuses.
JUDITH LINDSEY HARLOW ELEMENTARY
Judy Harlow (pictured left) and her family are a beloved and historical part of Anna. Judy, her parents and her children, were all graduates of Anna ISD. Judy served in Anna ISD for 27 years as a secretary, teacher and librarian. She, her husband Leonard, and her family are still very active and well-respected in the school and community. “I'm honored beyond words,” Mrs. Harlow said. “My desire is that this school will instill the students and teachers with the love of attending school, the love of learning, and the love of achievement. I hope each student that passes through these doors will have success and be an asset to their community.”
2017-2018 ELEMENTARY ATTENDANCE BOUNDARY LINES
To determine the best scenario for elementary boundary lines, the district took into consideration multiple factors. These factors included: campus demographics, community and staff surveys, and future elementary boundary and construction timelines. The new Boundary Line Map can be found here
AISD Superintendent Pete Slaughter said, “The district is excited to embrace Anna’s growth, as we plan and prepare for our future. As AISD grows, we will continue to adjust boundaries when new schools are opened. Our goal as a district, is to make these transitions as smooth as possible for our families and staff. I would like to thank the community for their continued support of our children.”
