Today hundreds of students, faculty, alumni, parents and other supports came to Polytechnic High School's community party to celebrate the dramatic gains students have made to turn the school around. Last year, the East Fort Worth campus faced state closure because of years of poor academic accountability ratings. But students made double-digit gains in every portion of state testing to keep the school open. Reporter Anna Tinsley covered the party and will posting pictures soon. Here's some video from the event including part of Principal Gary Braudaway'sspeech about the "spirit of Poly." In it he notes how the football team rarely won a game three years ago but pushed on anyway. Now, in the wake of their academic success, the Parrots' football team is heading into the playoffs for the first time since 1990.
