Waco Independent School District and the city’s NAACP chapter will host simultaneous meetings Monday night to discuss the school district’s six struggling campuses, five of which are facing the possibility of closure next year after a warning from the state in August.

Those campuses include Alta Vista Elementary School, Brook Avenue Elementary School, J.H. Hines Elementary School, G.W. Carver Middle School and Indian Spring Middle School.

Waco ISD’s meeting Monday is the first of three community meetings during the next three weeks to get input on the struggling schools. The Waco NAACP meeting is part of the organization’s regularly scheduled monthly meeting, Waco NAACP President Peaches Henry said Friday.

All three Waco ISD meetings start at 6 p.m., with Monday’s being held at the Waco ISD Conference Center, 115 S. Fifth St. The next will be Oct. 30 at the City of Waco Multi-Purpose Facility, 1020 Elm St. The last will be Nov. 6 at the Cen-Tex Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, 915 La Salle Ave.

The Waco NAACP meeting is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Texas Rangers Education Center, 100 Texas Ranger Trail.
