Farewell to the Allan Bulldog
Allan Elementary as we know it goes out with a final fling
Allan Elementary students, parents, and staff joined together on May 19 for the Farewell Festival before the campus is handed over to IDEA Public Schools on June 1. The dismantling of Allan is the first part of AISD and IDEA's proposal to turn the Eastside Memorial Vertical Team into an in-district charter. However, in a sign of how unpopular the proposal is, well over half the eligible students in the Allan attendance zone have instead opted to go to Govalle or Ortega elementaries, and several have said they are leaving the district altogether.
