In anticipation of the opening of Bee Cave Middle School in August 2019 and Elementary School No. 7 in August 2020, we must realign our existing school attendance zones to provide balance and continuity across our elementary and middle school campuses.
To get this process started, we engaged our community in a conversation about their priorities on realignment through an online tool called Thoughtexchange. We invited participants to share thoughts as well as rate the thoughts of others. An advisory committee will begin meeting in February to address realignment. The committee will use the feedback obtained through the exchange to assist in making a recommendation to the school board in April, with a final board vote expected in May.
The Thoughtexchange process has allowed us to move far beyond simple community engagement resulting in a much deeper conversation and stronger investment in our schools. The results of the exchange will be posted for public review shortly.
We are excited about the future of our fast growth school district.
