Leander ISD growing too fast??

That is what thisarticle in the Statesman thinks. I think I see the land at the top of Tumbleweed Hill getting cleared for the new high school. Not sure if it is for that or some other development. I also have heard of rumors of a third elementary school in Steiner Ranch. Not sure if that rumor is true or not, but we will see. Interesting snippet from the article.

Student enrollment is expected to be 58,618 by 2017. The district, which has 30 campuses, expects 28,954 students in 2008. An additional 29,664 students are expected by 2017, which means the district could need 16 new elementary schools, four middle schools and two new high schools.

One of the fastest-growing districts in the state, Leander is a victim of its own success, analysts said.

Its reputation for good schools has lured home buyers to the area and helped to insulate the district from the current downturn in the housing market, resulting in continued enrollment growth, according to a study by Population and Survey Analysts, the largest demographics firm in Texas.

So the good news is that the housing market is still doing good here… bad news is if we dont approve enough bonds… our kids might be in trailers sometime in their schooling years.
