It may have looked like a mass emergency had taken place at Edison High School on Tuesday morning, but rest assured, it was a Mock Disaster Drill. Students from six San Antonio ISD high schools tested their rescue skills while other students acted as victims. The students took their roles very seriously.

"Ok, so his blood pressure is 172 over 60, which is irregular, because he is a trauma patient," says Desiree.

The San Antonio Independent School District has fired a police officer who threw a 12-year-old girl at Rhodes Middle School to the ground.  The district announced the termination of Officer Joshua Kehm Monday morning.

The San Antonio Independent School District is selling off some of its property in hopes of raising enough money for a new district headquarters.

There are about six properties for sale, the prices of which have not been disclosed. Some of the plots of land include the Fox Tech High School softball and football fields, two vacant lots on South Presa Street and Lord Road, and the district’s food service warehouse.  

Thousands of San Antonio area kids will be going back to school Monday morning. It won't be Pedro Martinez' first day though, when kids return from summer vacation.

Martinez started his job in June, meeting with 300 new teachers the district hired this year and by meeting last year's graduates.

And he devised a five-year plan for district-wide improvement.

The San Antonio Independent School District is preparing to make an offer to one of two finalists for the job as the new superintendent.

The SAISD Board of Trustees announced at its April 13 meeting that it had narrowed the field to two candidates: Pedro Martinez, Superintendent in Residence for the Nevada Dept. of Education; and Dr. Scott Muri, Deputy Superintendent of Academics for Fulton County Schools in Atlanta.

Martinez and Muri were to come back this week, each to have a one-day series of information meetings with stakeholders. 

But Board President Ed Garza told reporters Tuesday he had received a letter from Muri  saying he had been selected as a finalist in another district and asked that his name be withdrawn from the process. The Wednesday night information meeting with Muri was canceled. 

“This was an aggressive and thorough search process that started with more than 40 possible candidates,” said Garza.
