Crockett Elementary School in Corpus Christi to close next year

On Friday, Corpus Christi ISD announced that Crockett Elementary School will be merged with Shaw Elementary School next year.

The change will take place in August 2023, the school district said in a statement.

After elementary school, Crockett and Shaw’s students would transfer to Martin High School and Miller High School.

The county made the announcement to Crockett and Shaw employees and their families on Friday afternoon.

The decision was made as a result of long term planning after the district considered the age and condition of schools across the district.

According to a press release, Crockett Elementary School is “approaching the end of its life.” The school opened in 1948. The school was described as being in a “poor” state in a long-range facility planning document provided to the Caller-Times last year.
