Community Meeting Planned to Discuss Single-sex Schools- Nov. 19

A community meeting to discuss single-sex schools in Northeast Austin will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, in the cafeteria of LBJ High School at 7309 Lazy Creek Dr.

As part of the Facility Master Plan process, AISD is considering combining the attendance zones of Pearce and Garcia middle schools in Northeast Austin. Male students would attend one campus and female students would attend the other campus. Parents who did not want their children in a single-sex school would have transfer options.

The meeting will include presentations by Superintendent Meria Carstarphen as well as a question and answer session. The next public hearing on the Facility Master Plan process will be Monday, Nov. 28. The Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the Annual Academic Facilities Recommendations that will drive the 2012-13 work, at its meeting Monday, Dec. 12. Learn more about community meetings >
