Fourth Public Hearing On Attendance Zone Changes Tonight

The boardroom of the Loudoun County school administration building is expected to be packed tonight for the fourth public hearing on the coming changes to several school attendance boundaries.

The Loudoun County School Board is in the process of redrawing the attendance map for elementary schools in the Brambleton, Ashburn and Leesburg areas.

The public hearing is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. tonight at the school division’s administration building, 21000 Education Court in Ashburn.

Several hundred students are expected to be reassigned schools, in preparation for Madison’s Trust Elementary School’s fall 2016 opening. The changes will relieve some of the county’s most-crowded schools.

Students at the following schools may be impacted by the attendance boundary changes: Creighton’s Corner, Hillside, Legacy, Mill Run, Moorefield Station, Rosa Lee Carter, Ashburn, Cedar Lane, Discovery, Dominion Trail, Sanders Corner, Steuart W. Weller, Evergreen Mill, and Sycolin Creek Elementary Schools.

Construction is underway on Madison’s Trust Elementary, near the intersection of Northstar Boulevard and Creighton Road in Brambleton. The building is on a fast-tracked construction timeline to have it ready for students next year.

The meeting schedule for the attendance boundary process is as follows:
• Monday, Nov. 16, public hearing;
• Monday, Nov. 23, board work session;
• Monday, Nov. 30, public hearing;
• Monday, Dec. 7, public hearing; and
• Tuesday, Dec. 8, adopt attendance boundaries.

Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. and take place at the school administration building. Get more details on the process here.

One thought on “Fourth Public Hearing On Attendance Zone Changes Tonight

    So, we’ve had nearly 10 public meetings to discuss moving a few hundred kids to a nearby elementary school. Not once did we discuss the quality of teaching at those schools in the reassignment zones.

    How many public discussions did we have on the use of student growth data even after a Richmond judge ordered it released last January? Zero.

    How many public discussions did we have on ending midterm/final exams particularly since 60%+ of teachers opposed this change? Zero.

    So it looks like LCPS & LCSB’s priorities are completely out of whack if we actually are interested in effectively educating our kids.
