Trustees voted yesterday to consolidate several schools as part of an effort to better support students and staff, bring premiere educational experiences to families in the area, and most effectively use district resources.
Under the plan, beginning in fall 2017, students who now attend Amelia Earhart Learning Center will go to Martinez Elementary School, and students attending Carver Learning Center will go to C.F. Carr Elementary School. Meanwhile, the Dallas Environmental Science Academy (DESA) will be housed in the current Earhart building.
In addition to better supporting students and staff, the consolidations will create the opportunity for a new Pinkston High School building to be built on the current Carver Learning Center and DESA site.
The 2015 bond will finance the construction of the new Pinkston High School. Go here for more details on the bond.
