Re: Realignment time!

It is not Del Valle\\\'s fault that YISD has changed the feeder zones district wide. I was baffled that the houses in the Castner/Kastrin Area (East of Lee Trevino) is Bel Air feeder area when DV is closer. Also, San Jose area (where the old church was) was at one time, Del Valle\\\'s feeder zone but is now mixed between Ysleta HS and Bel Air. I\\\'m assuming YISD tweaked the boundaries since YHS and BA have had a decline in enrollment the past 5+ years. As for Hanks, if you live west of Lomaland (Before getting to Yarbrough) you are in Eastwood Feeder zone yet Hanks High School is closer to those houses. Eastwood doesn\\\'t need more enrollment. IMO, Hanks HS is being underutilized for the size of campus it is.
There are no feeder patterns in yisd as they are open enrollment
Regardless of open enrollment, you still have feeder patterns.
Thank you FalconFeather. Indeed there are feeder zones/boundaries in YISD regardless of their "open enrollment". It only applies to students who live in EPISD, SISD, etc that chooses to go to a YISD campus, Ysleta ISD will not turn them away especially with the declining enrollment numbers they've been facing district wide. Now if you live in the YISD area, it doesn't apply to you unless you are some special student/athlete. What I mean by that is; lets say a student living off Padres St in the lower valley who has average grades and is not an athlete decides he/she does not want to attend Ysleta HS but would prefer to go to brand new Eastwood HS, YISD would not allow it. The said Student must bring something to the table in order for them to be accepted to a campus that is not in their feeder zone. It is the complete opposite for an average grade student who is not an athlete living off Saul Kleinfield or Eastlake Blvd that decides they want to go to Hanks or Bel Air, YISD would welcome them with open arms.

This is been done by enrollment, right? I would love to see Canutillo and Parkland move up to 6a?
No chance. They have 1500-1600 enrollment. Those are solid 5a D2 Numbers.

Haha...you a right I do see those coaches either retiring or transfer or terminated. But Canutillo with a roster of 50+ players every year they should be unstoppable, so I guess to blame is the talent right, not the coaches? 🤔
Another bitter parent. Or wanna be coach.
i don't see how he's bitter or wanna be coach. He's just saying what its been seeing each Friday night or been a big team in number and then to play at Ysleta and Riverside levels (no offense) cuz those team are almost iron man football and they put a fight vs the Eagles.
Anytime you are negative towards a team you just putting them down, you are bitter about something.

The americas coach accused dv of doctoring numbers?
Not directly. Maybe he was talking about Eastlake or Eastwood.

Tweet from Americas HC account:

Shady schools trying to figure out how to make 100 kids dissapear on snapshot day so they can stay 5a
I saw that but it wasn't very specific. So where the teams that were barely 5a that would be who those are directed at. Plus i have seen him and eastwood coach go back and forth probably for eastwood as their reputation is shady

You’re right. He might have “rivalries” with some coaches that I’m unaware of.

I see the Del Valle reported number is 2096. I’m very interested in El Dorados enrollment. They should have similar numbers to Del Valle.

Think you’re right when you say Melton is probably talking about Eastwood and maybe Eastlake. From a far it seems like there’s not a whole lot of love between the Americas and Eastwood head coaches lol.

Re: Realignment time!

EP Eastwood returning to 6A.
EP Eastlake moving up to 6A.
That'll put six teams in District 1-6A.
Has Eastlake been the highest classification anytime?

Re: Realignment time!

This will be Eastlakes first time in 6A

Re: Realignment time!

It will make 8 6a teams
