Leander ISD Bond and other school news

I guess the first question I have before I dive into this post is: Where is River Dance in Steiner Ranch? I looked at the map of Steiner Ranch and could not find it. I am guessing it is somewhere in Belcara. The reason I am asking is that Leander ISD announced that they purchased land in that area to build the third Elementary School in Steiner Ranch.

The Leander ISD Board of Trustees has announced the sites of two additional LISD elementary campuses, slated for a possible fall 2009 opening.

At their Thursday, Nov. 1, 2007 meeting, the LISD school board designated District-owned land west of Vista Ridge Blvd. and south of Park Street (near Vista Ridge High School) as the site of one of the two schools. The Board also announced that the District has signed a purchase agreement for land that will be the site of the other possible elementary. That site is in the River Dance Phase 4 section of the Steiner Ranch subdivision.

So about that bond proposal… It passed. That means that the new high school that will serve this area, built on Ribelin Ranch and bought last year, is funded. The LISD put out a websitethat gave factual information about the school bond. There are some articles here, here, hereand hereabout bond before and after it passed. One of the stories says its the biggest dollar amount school bond package in Central Texas coming in at a whopping 559 million dollars.

One last thing before I post a breakdown of the school bond is one very good website about Leander Schools you might want to check out called Leander Schools First.
