University Park residents concerned about 'skyscraper' of an elementary school

Next HPISD School Board Meeting April 17th

'Do the right thing'

"All during the bond process for the bond package, we were told that this would be a shared sacrifice and something that all of the three schools affected would be treated fairly the same," Bennett told the board. "As soon as the bond election occurred, it seems there were meetings that folks in the neighborhood didn't know about and decisions were made to change that."

He said keeping Hyer students at the fifth elementary school for two years is not only unfair to them, but to the Bradfield students who will not get to experience the fifth elementary school.
