Eastside Vertical Team
In Spring of 2011, Austin Voices began working with Eastside Memorial High School to facilitate community and parent engagement, as well as strategic planning. In 2013, that work expanded to the whole vertical team of schools: Eastside Memorial HS, Martin MS, Allison ES, Brooke ES, Govalle ES, Metz ES, Ortega ES, and Zavala ES. In the winter of 2013, Austin Voices facilitated the community meetings that led to the selection of Talent Development Secondary/Johns Hopkins University to work with Eastside Memorial as an academic partner over the next three years.
Reagan Community School Project
AVEY has been working to transform schools in the St. John area of Austin since 2007, including Reagan High School, Webb Middle School, Pickle Elementary and T. A. Brown Elementary. AVEY believes in strong community-based school improvement, not cookie-cutter reforms that are brought in from the outside.
Lanier Community School Project
In Summer 2015, Austin Voices was awarded one of 11 federal Full-Service Community School 5-year $2.5 million grants to support four schools in the Lanier HS feeder pattern: Lanier HS, Burnet MS, Cook Elementary and Wooldridge Elementary. The goal of the grant is to strengthen families, increase academic success for students and build community engagement for the Lanier Vertical Team.
