DISD’s Public School Choice Program is having a meeting Thursday, September 17 at 6pm at North Dallas High School, 3121 N. Haskell Ave. Participants will talk about creating “best-fit” schools for students. These schools are tailored around specific interest areas such as performing arts or STEAM or a certain learning style such as personalized learning. They are not limited to high schools.
“In 2012, East Dallas’ Fannin Elementary and D.A. Hulcy Middle in South Dallas closed as part of a cost-saving measure. The schools were two of nine that shut their doors that year.
This school year, they will be given new life under the district’s Public School Choice initiative. Fannin Elementary will reopen as an innovation, design and entrepreneurship academy for high schoolers while Hulcy Middle School will be revived to focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math,” reported the Dallas Morning News in August.”
