District Looking at New School Options
The Austin school district is moving forward with a plan that could ease overcrowding at some South Austin High Schools.
In 2008, Austin voters approved a bond that included $32 million to buy land for a high school in South Austin. Four years later, the district has yet to buy any land. The AISD board says the location will be determined by the type of high school to be built, and the district’s chief operating officer Lawrence Fryer says they’ll look at several different options tonight.
“Such as International Baccalaureate, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), early college high school, career and tech education, and a combination of any of those or other scenarios,” Fryer said.
The two-hour meeting starts at 6:30 tonight inside the Akins High School cafeteria.
