As It Turns Out, Dallas ISD Is Trying to Part With Historic David Crockett Elementary
Well, late last night a gentleman named Joe Biggs posted to the original item a video tour of Crockett -- and it ain't pretty. It's on the other side and makes a pretty good case for demolition by neglect. Asks Biggs: "Has David Crockett Elementary School Been Forgotten?" This morning, I sent Dahlander the video and asked if the district has indeed come up with a plan for Crockett nine months after our initial discussion. To which he replied:
"We have shown the building to various non-profit organizations who are interested in re-purposing it. So far, an offer has not been received but we are receptive to working with other groups that may be interested."Crockett first appeared on Preservation Dallas's most-endangered list in 2007; it returned earlier this year.
