Matt Haag from The Dallas Morning News reports that several schools (most in southern Dallas) in the Independent School District (ISD) have halted their construction projects.
One school, Pearl C. Anderson, already paid $400,000 for renovations before the construction was called off, said District spokesman Jon Dahlander. But he said some of the money went toward buying supplies, which can be used at other schools under construction.
Haag used Google Fusion Tables to examine Dallas’ planned school closings and which schools are underused. You can check out the data he used here:http://cl.ly/8g0P And you can play with an interactive map of all DISD schools here.
