Supporting AISD Students and Families

Event Background – On August 16, 2014, Austin Independent School District (AISD) will be hosting the ninth annual Back to School Bash Celebration and Safety Fair at the Austin Convention Center from 9:00AM to noon. Over 100 community and district organizations will offer exhibits for AISD families to learn more about the services and programs that can help students enjoy a safe and successful school year.

Key Services – Presentations on safety and educational best practices will help prepare both students and parents for the first day of school and beyond. Nurses from Dell Children’s/AISD Health Services will provide free vaccinations and Kids Vision for Life Central Texas may be providing free vision exams and eyeglasses. Students will also receive a free backpack filled with school supplies appropriate for their particular grade level.

Please consider participating as a sponsor or a volunteer for this year’s celebration.
