Art show­case

Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - Jew­elry de­signer Natalie Tis­chler hangs one of her neck­laces on a dis­play Mon­day at the Blue Ge­nie Art Bazaar at the March­esa Hall and The­ater in North Austin. She has been sell­ing her work at the bazaar since 2006. The Blue Ge­nie Art Bazaar is open from

on mov­ing for­ward,” Torkel­son said. “At this point, it’s more pro­duc­tive to talk about a path for­ward than for us to spec­u­late that this may have caused this or may have caused that. It’s a bit water un­der the bridge now.”

Par­ent Brandee Davis, the pres­i­dent of IDEA Al­lan’s PTA, said the char­ter has met her daugh­ter’s ed­u­ca­tional needs and she plans to stick with them.

“As par­ents, we are 100 per­cent com­mit­ted to fol­low­ing IDEA wher­ever they go,” she said Tues­day.

IDEA Al­lan serves 544 stu­dents in kinder­garten through sec­ond grades, as well as sixth grade.

If those par­ents pull their chil­dren from the district to fol­low the in­de­pen­dent char­ter, the district could lose about $4.1 mil­lion in state and fed­eral fund­ing.
