LISD reviews attendance zone proposals, approve construction projects


The Leander ISD Board of Trustees approved a series of major maintenance projects for 2019, reviewed the district’s performance on an annual Texas scorecard and continued the discussion for a 2020-21 middle school attendance zoning change at its Feb. 21 meeting.

Trustees are asking for more community input as they review all middle school attendance zones for the 2020-21 school year and the opening of Danielson Middle School. Following feedback on two community surveys,  LISD staff presented 'Scenario A' for consideration. 

Scenario A would provide relief for Stiles and Leander middle schools, eliminate small cohorts in middle school to high school feeder patterns of Running Brushy Middle School to Cedar Park High School and Henry Middle School to Cedar Park High School, move Wiley Middle School students zoned to Glenn High School to Danielson Middle School, raise the Cedar Park Middle School enrollment to 1,500 students and would make no changes to the attendance zones of Canyon Ridge and Four Points middle schools.

Trustees also acted on a number of construction and capital renewal projects, including resurfacing the track at Cedar Park High School, Four Points Middle School and Henry Middle School; replacing water heaters at Bagdad, Cypress and Reagan elementary schools, and Cedar Park High School; replacing deteriorated vinyl composition tile (VCT) in LEO Phase II;  cleaning and sealing the exterior walls at Running Brushy Middle School and the Science Materials Center; and replacing carpet at Naumann Elementary School. 

The Board also approved the Cedar Park Middle School HVAC updates and security upgrades. Both projects were approved by voters as part of the 2017 Bond.
