The Liberty Hill ISD board of trustees will vote on whether to adopt new attendance zones for elementary campuses next school year at a Feb. 20 meeting.

The rezoning comes as Tierra Rosa Elementary is set to open in August in the Santa Rita Ranch subdivision. The new attendance zones will relieve Santa Rita Elementary, which is over capacity by around 200 students, Superintendent Steven Snell said at a community forum on Jan. 16.

Current situation

After reviewing community feedback, district officials changed the proposed attendance boundaries so The Ridge at Cross Creek neighborhood would stay zoned for Rancho Sienna Elementary, according to the district’s website. The revised attendance zones now show Tiera Rosa pulling students from Santa Rita and Bar W elementaries.

How we got here

The district gathered feedback from community members through an online survey as well as virtual and in-person meetings in January after district officials proposed two rezoning options for elementary school campuses in December.

The district received more than 700 survey responses with 78% of respondents giving the first rezoning option a positive rating of 3-5, according to the district’s website. The initial proposal showed Tierra Rosa pulling students from Santa Rita, Bar W and Rancho Sienna elementaries; and Morning Star, Santa Rita East and The Ridge at Cross Creek neighborhoods.
