Williamson County Schools to host two rezoning meetings for new middle school

To help accommodate the district's growing student population, Williamson County Schools is planning to open new campuses next year, and students at surrounding schools will be rezoned as a result.

The district will open a new middle school on Henpeck Lane in the Franklin area next year, which is expected to affect several elementary and middle schools, according to the district.

Affected schools include Creekside, College Grove, Oak View, Thompson’s Station, Trinity and Winstead elementary schools and Spring Station, Heritage and Thompson’s Station middle schools, according to WCS.

The district will host two community meetings for parents to hear a presentation form WCS on rezoning and to fill out comment sheets, which will be given to the WCS board to consider.

The two meetings are scheduled for Oct. 29 at 6:15 p.m. at Oak View Elementary School and Nov. 7 at 6 p.m. at Thompson's Station Middle School.
