Posted on

In November 2019, there were news saying that Austin Independent School District (AISD) informed that a total of four schools stayed on closure list because it would not cost extra to shut all of them. If you want to know about the case, you can catch up the details below.

At a town hall, the representative of the Austin Independent School District (AISD) explained about the changes to the newest school closure plant of the district. The total of four elementary schools are suggested to be closed on the second draft that was released on a Friday in 2019. Those four elementary schools include Sims, Metz, Pease and Brooke. It is not a temporary close but they are suggested to be closed for two years. Actually, there are the other eight schools included on the original list but the district is rethink and will decide to take an action later.

AISD School Closing List

An associate superintendent of elementary schools named Gilbert Hicks said that the reason why the four mentioned earlier are still included on the list of the potential closure is because the district wanted to implement changes in year one that did not really need money to spend.

The representative of the Austin Independent School District (AISD) stated that they want to move the students from the schools that are closed to the new ones. Not only new, they also have more better buildings. The closure plan made by Austin Independent School District (AISD) could happen if another bond is proved by the voters.

In case Sims, Metz, Peace and Brooke are really closed, another bond is not needed anymore, as said by Hicks. According to the data, the Norman/Sims and Metz/Sanchez consolidations were funded by the 2017 bond. Some students from Brooke will go to Govelle Elementary, the one that was modernized through a previous bond. As for the students of an all transfer school named Pease, they will not go to a single building. On the other words, modernization money is not needed.

Since the students would go to different schools and not go to the same new school together, the district said that they will discuss it more with the staff of the schools and the families of the students about the Brooke’s proposed closure. In this case, it is possible for the school to be kicked out of the list, according to the staff.

Aside from the plan to talk with the staff of the Brooke and the families of the students, the staff of Austin Independent School District (AISD) also said they will also speak with the parents who have children in Peace about finding a school that wants and is ready to open their arm to the students to make the community stay together. They said that the public meetings will be held to take a decision.
