My neighborhood is out of city Royse City. Half of this aera is RC ISD and half is Quinlan ISD. No one around here send their kids to Quinlan ISD. Instead the choose elsewhere and pay out of district tuition which is fine. Not good for QISD and it perpetuates the poor opinion people have and some say it affects the marketability of property. That may be true.

So a couple in this area started a petition to get the ISD boundaries changed. They managed to get enough signature for a vote. The fact is the people who signed the petition didn't realize the impact it would have on property taxes. They weren't told the entire story.

Regardless I for one do not wish to switch to RCISD. I don't think QISD needs another set back. Instead we should support out local ISD and strive to improve. That certainly wont be easier if QISD looses the tax base that comes from these homes and properties.

So call QISD to object. Better yet object to the vote scheduled for 6/11 and RCISD.

People that have had or now have a negative opinion about QISD should come and see the great things going on in our school district. Being a certified teacher in the state of Texas, I have a choice of where I want to be employed and I choose Quinlan. This is a great school district and continuing to get better. We have wonderful Teachers, Administrators, families and students. As with every area, there is always some bad but it is sad that the GOOD things going on here are over shadowed by a few "bad seeds."

Our High School students are offered wonderful Career Classes as well as College credits while they are still in High School. Our Elementary schools are Recognized by the state and we have one of the few districts in the state that our TAKS scores increased again last year.

Before you judge us and choose to talk bad about our schools and send your children somewhere else, come and check us out and see for yourself the positive environment, education and attitude we can offer your child.
