Update: If there’s one word that sums up Eastside Memorial High School’s recent history, it would be, “change.”
In 2008, its name was changed from Johnston High School to Eastside Memorial. In 2011, the School Board changed the way the school functioned. It partnered with the charter school company—IDEA—to run the school. Then, in 2012, the School Board changed its mind and canceled that contract. On Monday, the board is expected to vote on another change: a new partner to help AISD run the school.
