Williamson County Schools Policy Committee met Monday (April 7, 2014) evening with the full Board of Education to discuss zoning for the county’s newest schools planned for York Road: Mill Creek Elementary, Mill Creek Middle and Nolensville High. Superintendent of Schools Mike Looney provided renderings of the zoning boundaries, projected enrollment numbers and affected neighborhoods during the special-called work session.

  • Subdivisions north of Rocky Fork Road will remain zoned for Nolensville Elementary.
  • Mill Creek Elementary is expected to open in fall 2016 with a projected 459 students, with 589 in Nolensville Elementary and 636 in Sunset Elementary. Mill Creek’s capacity is about 800 students.
  • An expected 131 students will be moved from Sunset Elementary into Nolensville Elementary from Concord Forest, Catalina and Brittain Downs subdivisions. All students from the three neighborhoods will be rezoned; the neighborhoods are not split.
  • Calculations for elementary, middle and high school levels do not account for future growth or grandfathering.
  • There are no subdivisions split by the proposed zoning plans. However, future residential development may not take into account the zoning boundaries.


The zoning proposal to go before the school board for a vote on April 21 affects only those families impacted by the new Nolensville schools. The rezoning is not district-wide nor does it take into account any “domino affect” from moving students.

Looney will discuss rezoning in two public meetings on Thursday. The first will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Nolensville Town Hall. The second will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Sunset Middle cafeteria.
