On Thursday, March 3, 2016, IDEA Rundberg, home of the Rattlers, held a dedication ceremony at its Austin campus, which serves 468 students. The ceremony was hosted by the academy Principal Karen Weissinger and college preparatory Principal Pike Nichols and in attendance were more than 100 parents and family members, as well as representatives from the KLE Foundation.
IDEA public schools are celebrating their 15 year anniversary, although the IDEA Rundberg campus opened in 2015 after the team converted the building into a school from a bowling alley.
Principal Weissinger delivered brief remarks and identified the school’s areas of focus to include daily attendance, meals for students, and providing transportation for students. Principal Nichols also gave the vision for the college-prep program which is by 2022, the first graduating class will have postsecondary education plans to attend college.
Additional remarks were given by Mr. Rodriguez from the IDEA Allan campus and a student who discussed how learning is fun and how grateful she is for her teachers and other students. TCSA congratulates IDEA Rundberg on the dedication of its campus and wishes the teachers and students continued success.
