We have been told that the rationale for closing ten EPISD elementary schools is that they are not being used to capacity.
In the case of Rivera elementary we have been told that the school is operating at 51 percent of capacity.
Why then does Rivera have six portable classrooms? Isn’t there enough room in the permanent classrooms for the children? Or is it possible that the six portables have been used to add “capacity”?
According to the Times the other schools are Moye, Beall, Bonham, Rusk, Alta Vista, Hawkins, Johnson, and Roberts.
If any of our readers pass by these schools we would appreciate hearing from them as to how many portables (if any) the schools have.
We deserve better
