AISD 0 Kim Wine attended recent AISD meeting with reps from Maplewood and Blanton, Jim Walker, Felicia Adams and Dr. Forgione. Demographers looking at latest numbers to decide about unnamed school on bond package.
Dr Forgione indicated Berkman will be the dividing line for the elementary schools – west of Berkman will feed to Maplewood and east of Berkman will feed to Blanton for the foreseeable future. Need to check with Claudia Kramer on her efforts to bring the Maplewood model to Blanton.
