After a four-month review and community engagement process, we will be presenting a recommendation for elementary school attendance zoning scenario 28B and 29B during the Feb. 11 Board of Trustees meeting.
Our presentation will present scenarios A and B for both schools to the Board and outline the community feedback we received through surveys and virtual, public meetings.
Scenario 28B focuses on the zoning charter priorities to minimize change and keeps students zoned to a school in closer proximity to their neighborhood. It decreases enrollment at Parkside and Pleasant Hill elementary schools. Akin Elementary School does not see enrollment relief until the opening of Elementary School 30, expected in the 2023 or 2024 school year near the Ranch at Brushy Creek neighborhood.
If approved, Scenario 28B would become the district’s elementary attendance zone in the 2021-22 school year as we open Tarvin Elementary School in Leander.
Scenario 29B provides relief for Larkspur and Plain elementary schools with the opening of ES 29 near the Bryson subdivision in Leander. The school would open in either 2022 or 2023.
The Board could approve the zoning plan during their Feb. 25 meeting.
