Austin ISD Partnerships with TCSA Members

Austin, Texas – The Texas Charter Schools Association welcomes today’s news that the Austin Independent School district will partner with one of our members, IDEA Public Schools, to run two in-district charter schools starting in the 2012-2013 school year. After a vocal public debate on the collaboration, we know there is work ahead for the Association in East Austin to clearly communicate the progress and potential within the Texas charter school movement. Charters and traditional public schools both have a role to play in improving public education. Today’s news is life changing for children and families in East Austin, delivering real options in public education strengthens East Austin for years to come.
