Austin ISD is beginning conversations around long-range planning which will ultimately determine which improvements and new facilities are included in the next AISD bond. They want to connect with our neighborhood to share about the process and learn more about our experiences and hopes for our schools. The buildings that house our three local schools are some of the oldest in the entire district and are due for renovation or replacement. Current and former AISD parents are encouraged to attend and share their thoughts!
