McKinney, Boyd among 4 Dallas-area schools appealing UIL's 2012-14 realignment assignments
Apparently administrators at McKinney, McKinney Boyd and two other Dallas-area high schools aren't too pleased with their new UIL districts.
McKinney, Boyd, Ferris and Irving North Hills have appealed their UIL district assignments for the 2012-14 athletic seasons, according to a UIL news release.
McKinney and its ISD 5A counterpart Boyd were assigned to District 10-5A along with some of the state's biggest schools -- Plano East, Allen, Plano and Plano West . McKinney and Boyd have requested to join 11-5A along with Garland, Garland Lakeview, Garland Naaman Forest, Rowlett , Sachse, North Garland and South Garland.
McKinney is the 10th-smallest 5A school with a reported enrollment of 2,121. You could add the enrollment of Boyd (2,900), and the two schools together would still only have the fourth-largest enrollment in the district.
Meanwhile, Ferris has requested to move from 11-3A to 14-3A, and Irving North Hills has requested to move from 11-3A to 10-3A.
The UIL originally assigned Wilmer-Hutchins, Madison, Prime Prep, Roosevelt, Ferris and Irving North Hills to 11-3A.
District 14-3A includes Crandall, Emory Rains, Kaufman, Quinlan Ford and Wills Point. District 10-3A includes Argyle, Aubrey, Carrollton Ranchview, Celina and Frisco Lone Star.
