On Tuesday, a newly formed nonprofit approved overseeing six schools in Waco for the next two years.

Five of those schools were at risk of closing earlier this year are part of the schools that will now be managed by Transformation Waco.

“It really sets the stage for the play that comes next. What can we do together: Transformation Waco, Waco ISD, Prosper Waco and other community partners, to help students at these campuses be successful,” Waco ISD Communications Director Kyle DeBeer said.
