After a controversial charter vote, posters criticizing San Antonio ISD Superintendent Pedro Martinez appeared around the district last week.
Student performance on STAAR tests this week will play a role in determining the future of several local elementary and middle schools.
The unanimous vote solidified a deal that has been months in the making between the district and New York-based charter operator Democracy Prep.
On Monday, the SAISD school board will vote on a partnership with Democracy Prep, and in doing so take an overdue step to transform a floundering school.
Representatives from statewide and local teachers’ groups filed a complaint over a partnership SAISD is negotiating with a charter operator.
At a time when traditional public school districts often seem at war with charter schools, San Antonio Independent School District consistently has been welcoming, with 20 in-district charters.
