From the 1960s to the 1980s the Austin Independent School District has experienced significant changes. The effects of desegregation orders handed down by the federal courts in a number of significant decisions has altered both the structure and the methods of a number of schools, both elementary and secondary, throughout the school district.
A burgeoning population in metropolitan Austin and its surrounding areas has increased the number of pupils in the Austin schools and has created a need for new school plants, new programs, and new methods of teaching and administration to deal with an ever-increasing school population.
A school district geared to the Austin school population of the 1950s and the early 1960s was not necessarily a district prepared to meet the needs of the swelling number of students of the 1970s and the 1980s. Compounding the problem was the necessity of busing a number of students from one area of town to another to achieve ethnic balance.
