Alamo Heights ISD is revealing it expelled a student for bullying another student in October. It's apparently in relation to a student who committed suicide last week.

A new plan to improve the pedestrian character of the Broadway corridor as it runs through Alamo Heights has been proposed. A linear park, designed by students and professors at the University of Texas San Antonio, has been presented to the city and its residents in multiple public meetings.
