41025 Collaboration Drive, Aldie, Virginia
At their April 9, 2018 meeting, the School Board voted unanimously in support of Plan 6. The secondary school attendance zone changes will take effect in fall 2020, with the start of the 2020-2021 academic year.
School Board Adopted Plan - April 9, 2019
Lightridge High School is scheduled to open in fall 2020, with the start of the 2020-2021 academic year. Also, with the opening of Lightridge High School, Willard Intermediate School will transition to Willard Middle School and serve students in grades six, seven, and eight.
On January 22, 2019, the Loudoun County School Board approved a calendar for the Dulles South area secondary school attendance zone change process.
In establishing an attendance zone for both Lightridge High School and Willard Middle School, the current attendance boundaries for J. Michael Lunsford Middle School, Mercer Middle School, Willard Intermediate School, Freedom High School, and John Champe High School will be reviewed. [Please Note - If your neighborhood is zoned to attend Independence High School, beginning fall 2019, you will not be impacted by this attendance boundary process for Lightridge High School and Willard Middle School.]

The Discovery Analytics Center (DAC) at Virginia Tech is a graduate research and educational unit focusing
on the science of big data to address, inform, and solve complex problems. In partnership with Loudoun
County Public Schools (LCPS) Division of Planning Services, DAC has designed a web-based program, Redistrict,
for public use during the Dulles South area secondary school attendance zone change process.
The Redistrict program is available to everyone and may be a useful tool to allow one to visualize school
attendance zone map changes by creating and printing a plan - or a plan created by a group of people in
Redistrict further allows participants to communicate ideas, by sharing opinions, and providing feedback to
others in an open forum. Learn what other community members think about changes, and understand the effect of
changes within a community.
No comments or concepts posted on the DAC site should be viewed as representing LCPS or the Loudoun County
