Sánchez Elementary School
The passage of the 2017 Bond allocated $25 million to modernize an elementary school in our community. After months of community engagement, the Austin ISD Board of Trustees voted in September 2018 to modernize Sánchez Elementary School (ES).
This modernization of Sánchez ES will take two years. After considering the best options for our students, the Austin ISD leadership team has decided that during these two years, students and staff from Sánchez will share a campus with Metz Elementary. Austin ISD leadership listened to the key considerations and concerns of faculty, staff and families.
Starting in the fall of 2019, Sánchez and Metz students will be co-located at Metz ES. During co-location, both campuses will share the Metz campus from August 2019 to May 2021. Each school will have space dedicated to their students and staff, and the two communities will share spaces including bilingual daycare, the cafeteria, the library, the pre-K play area and the gym.
In collaboration with the design and construction experts planning the modernized school, the Campus Architectural Team, made up of families, staff and community members, will provide input into the design of the modernized Sánchez. Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2020.
The Spring 2020 community update is available in English, Spanish, and Burmese at this link.
