The Red Raiders are part of new District 11-6A, which also features Garland, Lakeview Centennial, Naaman Forest, Rowlett, Sachse, North Garland and Rockwall.

This breaks up Lee's association with Mesquite ISD. Lee and Mesquite ISD schools have been in same district since 2004. Rockwall and Lee are the lone two schools from District 12-5A that stay together in new District 11-6A.

The Mesquite ISD schools moved into a district with Highland Park and Richardson ISD schools.
