On November 2, 2016, the city of San Antonio, Texas community leaders and elected officials celebrated the grand opening of the 56,000-square-foot Eastside Education & Training Center (EETC). The facility, which occupies the former Pfeiffer Elementary School, is a one-stop education and workforce development center designed for the Eastside community in partnership with Alamo Colleges and San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD).

The city identified and served as a co-applicant with Alamo Colleges and SAISD to secure a .5 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration to renovate the facility. The San Antonio’s Fiscal Year 2017 General Fund budget allocated 0,000 to open and operate the EETC for the next two years.
