Administrators explored every possible option for Kingwood
High School, from bringing in portables to leasing community space to moving grade levels into elementary and middle
schools. Only one option stood to reason. Summer Creek
High School, located in a still-developing part of the district,
was large enough to accommodate Kingwood’s students,
teachers and staff, and traffic and parking.
However, Summer Creek High School was not large
enough to accommodate both schools at one time, so an innovative schedule would have to be developed that required
shared sacrifice. Humble ISD e-mailed scheduling options
to both school communities. Feedback showed weaknesses
in both plans. Administrators considered the feedback and
