On April 21st 2014 the Williamson County School Board unanimously approved the district’s zoning proposal. This re-zoning was sparked by extensive growth in Williamson County and the building of three new schools expected to open in 2016.
The new schools, Mill Creek Elementary, Mill Creek Middle, and Nolensville High, will share a campus off York Road. According to Williamson County Schools, Mill Creek Elementary School will open with kindergarten through fifth grades. Mill Creek Middle School will open with sixth through eighth grades, and Nolensville High School will open to only freshmen and sophomores.
The re-zoning for these schools falls within the current Ravenwood High School zone and all its feeder schools within a part of Brentwood and all of Nolensville. Some of the larger subdivisions that remain in the Ravenwood zone are Brookfield, Southern Woods, Sonoma, Taramoore, Tuscany Hills and Inglehame, while some of the larger subdivisions in the Nolensville area that are zoned for the new Nolensville High School are Burkitt Place & Village, Bennington, Bent Creek, Catalina and Sherwood Green.
There are some exceptions to the re-zoning. To start, juniors and seniors will remain at Ravenwood, for now.
Superintendent of Williamson County Schools, Mike Looney, also said that the re-zoning did not account for additional growth and grandfathering, the district’s policy of allowing rising fifth-graders, eighth-graders and rising seniors and their siblings to remain at the school they are attending.
These changes will not go into effect until 2016 and it is likely that continued growth may continue to be a catalyst in additional changes. There are about 3,000 homes scheduled for construction in the affected areas and Looney said that there may even be more.
