Eastside High: More changes, and more students, to come. (Illustration by Doug Potter)
Eastside High is looking for 600 good students. As part of its push to get kids to sign up for the re-purposed (and still nameless) former Johnston High, Austin ISD is holding an enrollment fair for students from around the district today.
The new school is to be a school of choice, meaning students have to decide to opt to go there: No-one will be assigned until at least 2010. So this is about getting students who are really committed to the new proposal.The fair takes place at the the former Johnston campus (1021 Arthur Stiles) today (Sat. July 19) at 10am. The event runs until 1pm.
