STEAM, business choice schools in DISD give life to previously closed campuses

For three years the hallways at Dallas ISD’s Fannin Elementary have remained mostly silent, but come Aug. 24, the red-brick campus on Ross Avenue will be filled with students again. In 2012, East Dallas’ Fannin Elementary and D.A. Hulcy Middle in South Dallas closed as part of a cost-saving measure. The schools were two of nine that shut their doors that year. This school year, they will be given new life under the district’s Public School Choice initiative. Fannin Elementary will reopen as an innovation, design and entrepreneurship academy for high schoolers while Hulcy Middle School will be revived to focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math (The Dallas Morning News).
