The Leander ISD board of trustees voted to begin the board review process for attendance zoning for the district’s Elementary School No. 27 at a meeting Jan. 18.
As part of the board review process, LISD staff will develop attendance zoning options and present them to the board of trustees for consideration, according to the meeting documents.
The public will then have the opportunity to provide feedback at a meeting and online on the zoning scenario that the board recommends, according to the documents.
“Typically we’ll try to notify, through the campuses, [school district households in]all of the neighborhoods,” about the attendance zoning process, said Jimmy Disler, chief facilities and operations officer for LISD.
In November district staff identified the Larkspur subdivision in northern Leander as the location for the new elementary school, potentially serving children from subdivisions such as Orchard Ridge, Bryson and Summerlyn West. The school is scheduled to be complete by August 2019.
According to Jan. 18 meeting documents the tentative timeline for the attendance zoning process includes:
- Feb. 1 and 15: the board of trustees reviews scenarios;
- March 1: a public meeting is held;
- March 22: public feedback is presented to the board;
- April 5: the board finalizes a scenario; and
- Apr. 19: the board adopts an attendance zoning decision.
