AISD recently announced that a task force proposed to shut down nine Austin schools in order to help the district run more efficiently. Almost all of these schools earned an Exemplary rating this past year. Last night at a public forum, families and teachers shared from their hearts in reaction to this proposal.
Some of our kids at Vox currently go to one of these schools. They and their neighbor’s kids will all be impacted by this decision, so please pray for the schools, neighborhoods and task force.
*** If you would like to voice your thoughts and ask them to strongly reconsider shutting down these local neighborhood schools, leave your comments here. ***
