What does IDEA mean for SAISD on the East Side?

IDEA Public Schools, a charter school system from the Rio Grande Valley, opened IDEA Carver Academy within SAISD boundaries this year and plans to launch 19 more schools by 2017.

“With IDEA coming to San Antonio, there’s a possibility that SAISD won’t even exist on the East Side,” and trustees should act with urgency, said Steve Lecholop, a member of the district’s bond oversight committee.

“SAISD knows what it wants in a new superintendent”, Maria Luisa Cesar, San Antonio Express-News, October 10, 2012.
