Principal Amaris Salazar welcomed a crowd of visitors into her east Fort Worth school, but the campus is still months away from being a place of learning.
Salazar is the founding principal of the second — and, for now, last — campus for Rocketship Public Schools Texas. Salazar joined Rocketship administrators, city officials and others Feb. 8 to mark the beginning of a renovation project to transform a former office building at 820 E. Loop 820 into a $16 million school.
“Welcome to our home,” Salazar said.
The new school joins the charter’s inaugural campus, Dennis Dunkins Elementary in Stop Six.
Rocketship Eastside, the new school’s unofficial name, is expected to open in August.
