With the opening of Danielson Middle School set for 2020, Leander ISD is beginning the attendance zone – also known as boundary adjustment – process.


The Board directed the administration to collect feedback regarding the characteristics and scope of the forthcoming change. LISD will present that feedback at the Jan. 24 Board meeting.


The attendance zoning process includes several steps designed to maximize community involvement. The rezoning process will go on for the next several months, with the final board review and action possible in early May.  


LISD staff will solicit feedback from the community to determine priorities during the process, convey that feedback to the board, then develop scenarios for Board consideration.


Once the Board finalizes its recommendation, LISD staff will host public forums and collect feedback electronically for that scenario. When the staff presents the feedback, the recommendation could change before a final version is reviewed and adopted by the Board.


As in past years, staff will design a webpage to communicate the process. In addition, LISD will add the Let’s Talk! button to the various district web pages for additional feedback avenues.


“One of the challenges of a growing school district is periodically adjusting attendance boundaries to efficiently balance district resources,” Trustee Jim MacKay said. “We understand that this isn’t an easy process, and we are committed to understanding the various ways these changes will impact our community.”
