Rumor Watch: Text Message Claims LISD Candidates Want Re-Zoning

Lewisville ISD Notes

Open in new windowOpen in new windowWe've received a report that we can't independently verify, but since the allegation is so sleazy, we wanted to make sure to cover this:

Supposedly an unsolicited text message was sent to the mobile phones of voters in the area around Forestwood Middle School in Lewisville ISD, claiming that some Lewisville candidates for school board want to re-zone them to another school.

This is not the first time this rumor has come up, but it is FALSE. Candidate Brenda Latham reiterated today once again that she supports neighborhood integrity, and has never said anything about rezoning anyone anywhere. Rather she thinks that schools should be tied to neighborhoods. Latham, as well as Jeff Knapp and Julie Foughty - running as the KnFL team have stressed the importance of equity within the schools, ensuring that each school offers all opportunities to all students, regardless of the socioeconomic status of the neighborhood where they are located.

Nothing in any of the candidates platforms involves any sort of re-zoning, bussing, or lowering any standards or opportunities anywhere. All of the candidates, as far as we know, want to improve those with performance issues, and add opportunities where there are some missing.

We will update this post if we can get our hands on a copy of the text message, or get corroboration about who sent it. Please let us know if you receive a text message like this, or can add anything to this story.
