Katy ISD is a public school district based in Katy, Texas with an enrollment of over 70,000 students. As of August 2009, the district was rated as "Recognized" by the Texas Education Agency. The district serves 181 square miles in parts of Harris County, Fort Bend County, and Waller County. Most of the district lies within the boundaries of the City of Houston, the City of Katy or their municipalities' extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). Unincorporated areas in Katy ISD include Barker, Cinco Ranch, and Cimarron. So far, My experience with the District has generally been good!

I feel like I got a good education, but the district needs work. Instead of giving the teachers better pay, they choose to buy class sets of iPad minis and build a new multimillion dollar football stadium right next to the other one, which works perfectly fine. The online resource we use, called Canvas, has a lot of technical issues and is down often. However, we have a campus called the Miller career and technology center and it was an amazing experience to try out different careers before having to choose a college major or going into the workforce. I also took a few dual credit courses with my college to get ahead, and they really helped to, and they were free!
Among the things that are not reported are the unjust practices at Katy ISD, which essentially segregates its students through its unfair school boundaries and provides all the academic opportunities to its students south of IH10 while almost entirely neglecting its students north of IH 10.This appears to be done intentionally as every single school board member resides south of IH 10.In fact, Texas data reported through TEA provide proof of this gross disparity.Using the school district's high schools as a point of reference, one would find that almost half of all graduates from north side schools Morton Ranch and Mayde Creek High Schools graduate below grade level, as made evident by their required enrollment in remedial courses when enrolling in undergraduate studies.This is in stark contrast to south side schools, where less than one fifth of high school graduates from Seven Lakes and Cinco Ranch High Schools begin their undergraduate studies having to enroll in remedial classes.
