  •  Austin's first community led school (3+ / 0-)

    Tonight the Austin ISD Board will vote to approve the city's first community led school. This is a grassroots led project, not a charter run by an outside private group. It is a collaborative proposal developed by the neighborhood, the school itself, employee union Education Austin, and local nonprofit Austin Interfaith. It would still be the same students and same staff on the same campus: However, rather than taking edicts from AISD central administration, the campus would have a governing board with parents, teachers, and a seat each for Education Austin and Austin Interfaith.
