On April 25, 2013, the Waco ISD School Board adjusted school attendance zones to alleviate overcrowding at some schools and to better distribute the student population among District facilities.
Most affected by the redrawn attendance zones are Bell's Hill Elementary, West Avenue Elementary, Crestview Elementary, Parkdale Elementary, Cesar Chavez Middle and Indian Spring Middle. However, the domino effect of adjusting those zones also caused minor changes to others.
