HISD to close Dodson Elementary

After an intense community discussion over an initial proposal to shutter 5 schools, the Houston Business Journal is reporting that “the Houston Independent School District voted to close Dodson Elementary and repurpose Jones High into a specialty vocational school.”

From HISD, “Beginning next year, students currently zoned to Dodson will be permanently rezoned to nearby Blackshear Elementary, Lantrip Elementary or The Rusk School. The Montessori program will move to Blackshear Elementary.”
