The AISD Facility Master Plan Task Force continues to consider options to reduce AISD's budget. One of the options back on the table is the closure of Mollie Dawson Elementary, moving all students to Becker Elementary. The Dawson campus is in excellent condition with ready access for ALL students to ALL classroom areas, special needs included. In a location that is easily accessible from many south-central Austin neighborhoods, the grounds offer tremendous space for expansion while still providing plenty of area for fitness and other activities in one large, enclosed, safe space. Please sign this petition to support Dawson staying open and continuing to provide a high quality learning program for ALL of our amazing students at the high achievement levels that have become the Dawson tradition!"
