In a letter to parents, Lake Travis Independent School District Superintendent Paul Norton addressed potential overcrowding at the district’s two largest elementary schools – Rough Hollow Elementary and Bee Cave Elementary. “The growth in these communities has exceeded our demographer’s projections,” said Norton. “While there will be more students and adults in the building, I can assure you that class sizes will remain within our allowance. Although additional supports are being put in place, we will continue to review enrollment and staffing needs on a weekly basis.”

Steps the district is taking to prepare for the new school year include adding a second assistant principal at each school and increasing monitor hours for lunch supervision. Rough Hollow will have an additional music teacher and an additional art teacher. Bee Cave will have an additional paraprofessional to assist the music and art teachers. All elementary schools will have additional monitors that will relieve teachers from recess duty, “allowing classroom teachers to have additional planning time.”

Norton also addressed redrawing attendance boundaries.
