Community Meetings Nov. 13 and 14 to focus on improvements to John Ireland Elementary and the proposed new L.G. Pinkston High School

Students and parents served by John Ireland Elementary in southeast Dallas and L.G. Pinkston High in west Dallas are invited to community meetings set for Mon., Nov. 13, at Ireland, and Tues., Nov. 14, at Pinkston, to learn about proposed improvements planned for the two schools.

Plans call for Ireland, which serves students in grades pre-K through five, to receive a new bus drop off lane, paint throughout the building, new flooring, light fixtures and air conditioning/heating upgrades, among other improvements. A flyer with additional details about the Ireland improvements and community meeting is available here

Students served by L.G. Pinkston High School in west Dallas can look forward to an entirely new 200,000-sq.-ft. campus sized to serve 1,000 students. The new school will be constructed on land previously occupied by G.W. Carver Learning Center and the Dallas Environmental Science Academy. The new Pinkston will feature classrooms for core academic subjects, STEM instruction, and common areas, including a gym, cafeteria, auditorium, and storm shelter along with spaces for fine arts and career and technical education programs.
