An AISD elementary is district's first in-district charter school

An AISD elementary school is breaking from the mold and become the district's first independent in-district charter school.

Travis Heights Elementary worked with Austin Interfaith and Education Austin to gather support from teachers and parents to turn the South Central Austin school into its own charter school. Special Education Teacher Brit Adams says it will change how they educate all together, "We will have the autonomy, and the power and the flexibility to decide how we are going to run our school and also how we are going to teach our students."

Adams says the Austin school board will vote on their in-district charter application at their board meeting next Monday.
