Leander ISD will hold a meeting about potential elementary school rezoning for families in the Cold Springs and Hazelwood neighborhoods at 6 p.m. March 5 in the Rouse High School lecture hall at 1222 Raider Way in Leander.
On March 3, LISD sent out an email to families in Cold Springs and Hazelwood. During the Feb. 27 LISD board of trustees meeting's citizen comments, five parents from the Hazelwood neighborhood spoke against possible future rezoning from Akin and frequent rezoning in the past.
Nancy Tarvin Elementary School will open in Leander in August 2021. With Tarvin’s opening, LISD will change the attendance zones of an yet-to-be determined number of elementary schools.
Akin, Camacho, Larkspur, Mason, Parkside, Plain, Pleasant Hill, Rutledge and Whitestone Elementary schools are predicted to be at 120% capacity or greater within five years.
"We know this topic has been heavy on your minds, and this meeting would be an in-person opportunity for us to share what we considered in forming Scenario A," the March 3 email said. "It would also give you, the families in the 1675 [Cold Springs] and 1680 [Hazelwood] neighborhood codes, the chance to share what we might have missed."
After trustees approved a charter Feb. 27 to begin the elementary school rezoning process, the first scenario, called Scenario A, will be made public March 6, according to LISD.
