July 1, 2006.]

For the 2005-2006 school year and onwards, the W-H ISD portion of Hutchins is served by several schools located in Dallas. They include Bushman, U.

Maceo Smith High School (in two separate attendance zones). The zoning will remain the same for the subsequent school year.

The Dallas ISD is considering opening a new Wilmer-Hutchins Elementary School building, restoring the Wilmer-Hutchins High School building, and demolishing the Kennedy-Curry Middle School building as part of its 2008 bond campaign.
