Camp Tyler changing hands

Posted By Kelly Hefelfinger

Late Thursday night, Tyler ISD board members voted unanimously to hand over control of Camp Tyler to the Camp Tyler Foundation.

TISD decided in January to look into the move, which officials say could save the district $600,000 a year.

District officials say teachers who work at the camp will be considered first in line for new openings on Tyler campuses.

The change is expected to go into effect at the beginning of the next school year.
