Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD could see an enrollment surge in the middle of this school year, according to a North Texas demographer. 

Zonda Education, a Southlake-based demographics firm, expects a growing supply of newly constructed homes to attract more families to the district in northwest Fort Worth.

Bob Templeton, vice president at Zonda, told the school board that Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD broke two records between July and September: The district saw 632 new homes start construction and 681 homes purchased. Both numbers are the highest Zonda has recorded for the district since 2017.

However, enrollment is not growing as fast as expected, Templeton said. Enrollment in December was 23,451 students. In August, the district expected enrollment to hit 23,763 for the school year.

“That number is literally changing every week,” Templeton said. “I expect this will continue throughout the year, especially at the elementary grade levels.”
