At its meeting on March 4, 2015, the Board of Education of Baltimore County approved the boundary for Lyons Mill Elementary School and related boundary adjustments for Deer Park ES, New Town ES, Owings Mills ES, Winand ES, and Woodholme ES to help relieve persistent overcrowding among area elementary schools. Families will be notified soon regarding how the new boundaries may affect them. In the meantime, the detailed interactive map available via the link below provides a very accurate, street-level view of the new boundaries.
Lyons Mill Elementary School is currently under construction on Lyons Mill Road, west of Owings Mills Boulevard in the northwest region of Baltimore County. The school, which will open in August 2015, will help relieve overcrowding at schools in the area, particularly New Town ES and Woodholme ES. The process for creating attendance boundaries for the new school and other affected schools began in mid-September 2014, and concluded in March 2015. A committee comprised of school representatives, parents, and community members met six times from September to December 2014 to examine data and multiple scenarios. In December 2014, a community information session was held and an online community survey was available to receive input from the public.
The committee's work and all related information about the boundary process can be found below and the Boundary Committee’s meetings can be viewed on video via links found below next to each meeting date.

Board Approval for Proposed Projects – 11/5/2013
At its November 5 meeting, the Board of Education of Baltimore County approved the superintendent's revised FY 2015 state capital budget recommendations. The revisions reflect feedback received from recently held community forums and discussions with county and state leadership.
The state-requested projects require that county matching funds be verified before final state approval.
The approved budget recommendation includes a request for a new elementary school for the northwest area. Plans for this school were approved by the Board of Education of Baltimore County on September 24, 2013. BCPS anticipates that a new 700-seat school will be built on Lyons Mill Road, west of Owings Mills Boulevard, by the start of the 2015-2016 school year. The new school is intended to relieve overcrowding at New Town and Woodholme elementary schools.
At the September 24, 2013, meeting of the Board of Education of Baltimore County, the board approved a new elementary site on Lyons Mill Road west of Owings Mills Boulevard, in the northwest area of the county.
Now that the Board has approved this site, BCPS anticipates that the new elementary school will be open for students at the start of the 2015-2016 school year and will relieve overcrowding at New Town and Woodholme elementary schools.
Redistricting to create a student population for the new school will begin in September 2014 and will include representation from the community and many opportunities for community input. The school system will continue to work with New Town and Woodholme elementary schools to manage overcrowding issues until the new school opens in 2015.
Information about the proposed school can be found at the link below. It is important to note that this is just the beginning of the overall process, and that more information will be shared as it is available.
