More than 20 public schools in the San Antonio Independent School District may close under a plan that could save as much as $40 million a year.
The district has experienced declining enrollment for 40 years. There are about 55,000 students enrolled in the district.
The San Antonio Express-News reported Wednesday that closing 21
schools is the most dramatic of three plans put forth by an advisory committee. Eight public meetings are planned for August and September to discuss the proposals.
The proposed closures would take place over a decade, with the
first coming no earlier than 2010.
