The Loudoun County School Board on Oct. 7 entered into another attendance zone boundary change process for Cardinal Ridge Elementary.
The session provided an opportunity for staff to share information pertaining to the attendance zone process with the School Board with an introductory presentation from staff and a public hearing.
It's the beginning of the process and no zoning plans are on the table yet. On Oct. 7, only one speaker turned out for the public hearing, but the session allowed School Board members to ask questions and make initial comments.
Cardinal Ridge Elementary School is just east of J. Michael Lunsford Middle School in the Dulles South area.
Board members Jeff Morse (Dulles) and Tom Reed (At Large), who represent the affected area, announced they will make themselves available to area groups to hear concerns or ideas during the process.
“If there are elements of the community in the Dulles South district and you would like me to come speak with them, my schedule is open,” Morse said. “Send me an email and I would be glad to contact you and set up a mutually agreeable date to go over any ideas you have about the plans.”
The School Board has planned a adoption of the new attendance zones at their regularly scheduled meeting Dec. 10.
All information and details on the process proceedings will be posted on the Loudoun County Planning and Legislative Services website as they become available.
The next Attendance Zone discussion will be a School Board Attendance Zone Work Session at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 21.
