School Board Resumes Boundary Line Work, Unfinished Meeting on Tuesday

A map showing secondary attendance zones in Loudoun County Public Schools. Secondary schools in Eastern Loudoun, Ashburn and Central Loudoun are up for attendance zone review. 

The Loudon County School Board will hold another secondary school attendance zone work session on Tuesday, Nov. 1. The board is eyeing changes in the Ashburn, eastern Loudoun and central Loudoun regions.  

The work session will include attendance zone proposals from several School Board members, including one from John Beatty (Catoctin), three from Andrew Hoyler (Broad Run) and two from Atoosa Reaser (Algonkian).

Community members may create their own attendance zone map using the Virginia Tech Sanghani Center for Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics platform by going to redistrict.cs.vt.edu. They may then submit their proposals to their School Board member to be considered. School Board members may then sponsor a plan and present it in future attendance zone meetings. Individuals are not allowed to present it themselves.

Plans may be submitted via email to LCPSPLAN@lcps.org.

The School Board will reconvene it’s Oct. 25 meeting following the attendance zone work session to complete unfinished business from last week.

Tell your representatives in Richmond that you want real School Choice - or replace them.

Instead of bickering over boundary lines with some winning and others losing, empower parents to send their children to the in- or out- of district government, charter, parochial, private or home school of their choice. Let the education money follow the kids. Competition will improve schools just like it does everything else. Consumers (parents and kids) will benefit. Political boards, and unions may oppose the freedom to choose, but all manner of problems will be solved from curriculum to closures, forced vax, girls' privacy and sports, etc. Go to the school that best fits your preference for freedom or control. Everyone wins, but the authoritarians, who want to impose their preferences on you.

I hope as many Loudouners as possible get involved. It's too important an issue to leave solely in the hands of so-called experts. They've gotten it wrong many times in the past. Happy Halloween Loudoun!
