Thursday, January 9, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
Though the Austin Independent School District has, of late, made headlines for proposed school closures, yesterday the district opened the new T.A. Brown Elementary School as part of the 2017 Bond Program. The campus was closed in 2016 due to structural issues, and demolished in 2017. According to a press release about the new, modernized campus: “A Campus Architectural Team made up of Principal Sharp, former Webb Primary director Marizza Marquez, additional school staff, parents and community members provided guidance throughout the design process as the team of ERO Architects, Rogers-O’Brien Construction and AECOM brought the modernized T.A. Brown campus to life. Design began in March 2018, with construction beginning in November 2018. Mr. T.A. Brown himself was an influence in the design of the school; a principal at Pease Elementary for 41 years, he represented high character and devotion to education.”
