ISD parents in Pflugerville concerned about possible school closures

At its Thursday meeting, the county’s school council discussed a school boundary change that would include possible school closures.

PFLUGERVILLE, Texas—Some Pflugerville ISD Parents are concerned about school closures the district is considering.

A viewer reached out to KVUE to say the parents are “outraged” after reportedly learning the county is considering closing three schools, including Pflugerville Elementary Schoolthe oldest elementary school in the district.

“These closures are being considered while several subdivisions and apartment complexes are being built in close proximity to Pflugerville Elementary,” the viewer wrote. “That means more residents and fewer schools. A lot of families have moved to the area for the school.”

The viewer went on to say that the closure of Pflugerville Elementary would force students to go to other schools, causing overcrowding and a strain on families.

The viewer said the board plans to discuss the closures as part of its agenda for Thursday’s session under the “Discussion Regarding Proposed 2023-24 Attendance Limit Adjustments” section.

KVUE has reached out to Pflugerville ISD for more information on whether school closures will be discussed at Thursday’s board meeting. The county sent the following response:

“This evening [Thursday] At the board of trustees meeting, staff will present several draft attendance limits for the 2023-24 school year, some of which include possible school closures. A series of boundary meetings for community feedback will follow this board presentation. The Board of Trustees will not process the proposals tonight.”

The district did not say which schools would be affected by these potential closures.

A Facebook site for the Pflugerville Elementary School PTO canned post Wednesday night and invited the community to share their thoughts at the board meeting.

At the meeting, district leaders said the main problem is that enrollment is declining and the school district isn’t getting enough government funding to keep some schools open. School members took no action at the meeting.
