Community members can now give their feedback on proposed attendance zones for Elementary School No. 30. The campus opening may impact the zoning for several elementary campuses next school year.

The setup

Leander ISD released the potential attendance zones for its newest elementary school opening in 2024 at the intersection of San Gabriel Parkway and North Bagdad Road. Over the coming weeks, the district will host forums and an online survey until Nov. 10 to garner community input on the zoning scenario.

Elementary School No. 30 would pull students from Bagdad and Plain elementary schools, according to the scenario. Some students would also be moved from Larkspur Elementary to North Elementary; Plain Elementary to Camacho Elementary; and Camacho Elementary to Bagdad and Whitestone elementary schools.

Around 835 students would be impacted by the rezoning, with about 550 zoned for Elementary School No. 30, according to district documents.
  • 302 from Bagdad to Elementary School No. 30
  • 250 from Plain to Elementary School No. 30
  • 157 students from Larkspur to North
  • 68 students from Camacho to Whitestone
  • 31 students from Plain to Camacho
  • 27 students from Camacho to Bagdad

The context

Elementary School No. 30 is one of at least four elementary schools the district plans to open over the next 10 years to relieve capacity at its northern elementary campuses.

Once Elementary School No. 30 opens, seven elementary campuses will be over capacity with North Elementary at 120% capacity, according to projections based on the zoning scenario. In 2025, the district will open another elementary school and an early childhood center to provide further relief.

What's next?

The district will create a zoning recommendation report to be reviewed by its Long-Range Planning Committee on Nov. 14. If additional modifications are needed to the initial scenario, the district may create another scenario to be reviewed at a later date. The board of trustees will vote on the final attendance zones Dec. 14.
