Loudoun School Board narrows Goshen Post boundary plans down to four

The Loudoun County School Board has introduced one more plan — a seventh — in its consideration of boundary adjustments for the upcoming Goshen Post Elementary School in Dulles South.

However, the board has cut some plans from consideration and is now only considering four plans: Plans 3, 4, 6 and 7.

Plans 3, 4 and 6 were presented at an earlier work session, while the board's Nov. 28 meeting served as an introduction to Plan 7.

All plans seek to provide overcrowding relief and provide as much stability as possible in the region, given that another elementary school will open in the area in just a few years.

Plan 3, developed by Eric Hornberger (Ashburn), moves 174 students between existing schools and 883 students to Goshen Post.

Plan 4, developed by Chairman Jeff Morse (Dulles), moves 220 students between existing schools and 848 to Goshen Post.

Plans 5 and 6 were developed together by Jill Turgeon (Blue Ridge) and Beth Huck (At-Large) and were each based on Plans 3 and 4, respectively, with small changes. The changes include moving the entire Willowsford neighborhood to Goshen Post and moving one planning zone out of Goshen Post to Aldie Elementary.

The full plans with board members’ rationale are posted on the Loudoun County Public Schools website, on the "Planning & Legislative Services" page.

A final public hearing on the school’s attendance zones is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5.

The School Board is set to adopt the Goshen Post attendance zone changes at its Dec. 12 meeting.


If you are affected by the Goshen Post ES rezoning and have a better plan in mind, use https://redistrict.cs.vt.edu/ to create your own plan and make suggestions to LCPS. Apparently LCPS has collaborated with Virginia Tech to help the parents.
