Public Hearing On School Attendance Changes Tonight

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

A third public hearing on the matter 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. See the proposed attendance changes here.
