Long Range Planning Committee Reconvenes for Project Updates

At the October 17, 2022 Board Meeting, the LHISD Board of Trustees officially charged Superintendent Steven Snell with reconvening the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC). After studying the rapid growth in Liberty Hill and the facility needs, the 2020-2021 LRPC successfully developed recommendations resulting in a call for a 491.7 million bond election which was passed in May 2021.


The reconvening of the Long Range Planning Committee not only provides LHISD with an opportunity to update committee members on construction, renovation, and capital projects as part of the Bond 2021 program, but it invites community stakeholders to review updated enrollment growth, capacity, demographic projections, as well as evaluate the facilities, technology, and programs to meet the needs of our students.


On Wednesday, October 19th, we excitedly welcomed over 72 committee members to our first 2022 Long Range Planning Committee meeting held at Liberty Hill Middle School. With our mission, vision, and strategic plan serving as the foundation, our Long Range Planning Committee will collaborate and recommend future planning that prioritizes anticipated needs to align resources to best serve our students, staff, and community for years to come.
