The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) serves Round Rock, parts of Williamson County, parts of Travis County, and parts of Cedar Park and Austin. In some states, city governments administer the school district. In Texas, however, school districts are independent tax entities with their own taxing authority and governing board. The RRISD serves several cities and two counties. Questions about the school system should be directed to the RRISD.
Depending on the subdivision in which you will live, there may be a neighborhood association which can be either an informal group of individuals who get together to socialize or are formed for more formal purposes as defined by deed restrictions or to maintain agreements between the home owners and developers.
