CCISD Superintendent Answers Questions from the Public
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Parents, community members, teachers and staff of the Corpus Christi Independent School District gathered Thursday morning to have coffee with the superintendent.
CCISD Superintendent Scott Elliff holds these events -- aptly called "Coffee with the Superintendent" -- to give the public a chance to ask questions and get answers. Thursday's event, held at the Jason's Deli on Saratoga, was a packed house.
Elliff tackled issues such as testing inside the school district, consolidation of schools and a timeline on how construction is going concerning the new Dorothy Atkins Middle School and the new high school.
"The construction is going on schedule," Elliff said. "The high school will open fall of 2015. Our board, we anticipate our board selecting a name for that new high school Monday night, Oct. 14, so things are moving along quite well with that project."
The superintendent said a groundbreaking ceremony will be held for Dorothy Atkins Middle School on Oct. 21, with the school to be opened in August of 2015.
