(ABC 6 News) – Monday, the Community Learning Center in Austin will soon have a new temporary space in Austin.

The Austin Public School board met for the first time in 2023 and approved a request to lease office space at Our Savior’s Lutheran church.

Back in August, the center’s program had to be relocated into existing elementary facilities due to several facility health and safety issues, including the presence of bats.

Andrew Adams, Executive Director of Finance and Operations for Austin Public Schools spoke about why the lease will benefit the program as they work towards a long-term solution. 

“This currently is a temporary solution which will allow use to make some very intentional planning for what we want our model to look like and how we can find and utilize space in our building to house these individuals and programs in the future,” Adams said.

The yearly cost of the lease will be just over 22-thousand dollars.
