A surge in the number of families moving into the southern end of the county is triggering another round of attendance boundary changes.

The Loudoun County School Board is scheduled to begin hashing out the secondary school boundary changes at a meeting Tuesday. Sam Adamo, executive director of planning, will provide an overview of the potential changes and a public hearing will be held at 6:30 p.m. The meeting is at the school administration building, 21000 Education Court in Ashburn.

The attendance changes will be made ahead of the opening of an unnamed middle school, MS-7, in the fall of 2018 at 40929 Braddock Road near Aldie.

Students in the following 23 schools were notified that they may be impacted by the changes:

  • Briar Woods High School, Eagle Ridge Middle School, Hillside Elementary School, Mill Run Elementary School, Moorefield Station Elementary School;
  • Freedom High School, J. Michael Lunsford Middle School, Cardinal Ridge Elementary School, Hutchison Farm Elementary School, Liberty Elementary School, Little River Elementary School;
  • John Champe High School, Mercer Middle School, Aldie Elementary School, Arcola Elementary School, Buffalo Trail Elementary School, Pinebrook Elementary School; and,
  • Rock Ridge High School, Stone Hill Middle School, Creighton’s Corner Elementary School, Legacy Elementary School, Madison’s Trust Elementary School, Rosa Lee Carter Elementary School.

Only fifth-grade students at the listed elementary schools would be affected.

The board will hold several public hearings and work sessions ahead of adopting a final plan Dec. 13. To sign up to speak or and for other details, go to lcps.org/Page/104704.
