On Nov. 18, Austin ISD trustees named David Crissy—currently the principal at Kiker Elementary School in Southwest Austin—as the future principal of the district’s new Southwest Elementary School, which is set to open for the 2020-21 school year.
According to an AISD news release about the appointment, Crissy will lead the construction project at the new campus—located southeast of the intersection of Trissino Drive and Escarpment Boulevard—beginning in January 2020.
Crissy has been the principal at Kiker since June 2018 and served as assistant principal at Travis Early College High School prior to that, according to the district.
