SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Independent School District plans to hold 14 public meetings to gather feedback on a draft framework to help guide the district’s rightsizing study.

Introduced in June of this year, the study will assess all of the district’s schools, analyze the student enrollment at each school, evaluate if SAISD is providing high-quality education as promised, consider whether the building is being used effectively, and determine whether resources are fairly distributed to support all students.

SAISD cites a steady loss of enrollment over 20 years as a driving reason for the implementation of the study.

The framework is a decision-making tool that will guide the district’s study on rightsizing.

SAISD expects the meetings to help garner a list of schools to be recommended to the Board of Trustees for closure, consolidation or co-location in the 2024-2025 school year and the campuses that would receive the affected students and staff.

Input from the meetings and from a survey on the district’s website will be incorporated into the final framework.

  • Thursday, Aug. 17 - 6:30 p.m. at Highlands High School - 3118 Elgin Ave., 78210
