Last week was snapshot day for schools across the state to submit attendance numbers for the upcoming district realignment.
For the rapidly expanding LISD schools, there some expected change. But instead, it was more of the same.
Based on Dave Campbell’s Texas Football high school insider Matt Stepp’s estimated cutoffs, Class 6A will begin with schools 2,175 students and above. Class 5A-DI will range from 1,760 to 2,174 students and Class 5A-DII will be from 1,125 to 1,759.
Vandegrift and Vista Ridge are again the two largest schools in the district, boasting populations of 2,582 and 2,343, respectively. Leander is still in the expected 6A range after turning in a snapshot of 2,199.
The other three schools will be split into DI and DII.
Cedar Park is the largest 5A school in the district with 2,030 students and Rouse will most likely join them in DI with a population of 1,862. Glenn, which will play its first season of UIL sanctioned football, is firmly in DII at 1,514 students.
All of the schools in Round Rock are slated to go 6A: Round Rock (3,359), Cedar Ridge (2,765), Westwood (2,745), McNeil (2,663), and Stony Point (2,607). Lake Travis (3,083) and Westlake (2,683) will be in Class 6A as well.
The UIL will announce the official district alignment in early 2018.
