Elementary #20 Boundary Information
Pflugerville ISD is currently considering new elementary school boundaries as it plans to open the district’s 20th elementary in the fall. Families impacted by this change were sent a letter in the mail and invited to take part in an upcoming meeting to learn about the boundary proposals and give district officials feedback.
Boundary Proposal (PDF)
Next steps include hosting the boundary meetings, presenting a proposal to the Board of Trustees for feedback and, finally, approval by the Board of Trustees. The anticipated timeline is Nov. 21 for Board review of the proposal and Dec. 19 for final Board approval. That timeline is subject to change, and additional information will be posted on the PISD website regarding those dates as more information becomes available.
