EPISD made it know months ago that Burnet was on a list of schools that might be closed. That list was presented at a presentation to nearly 100 people, including parents. That possibility was widely publicized by the media mid-year last year. The parents had their chance to rally support to keep it open.
Not being familiar with the situation, I will still write a blog post about it..
