UPDATE: Summer Jumpstart Program

All Austin ISD high school students will have the opportunity to receive credit recovery for fall semester (A sections only) of yearlong core courses.  Please note that each Twilight high school site, in addition to four non-Twilight high school  sites, will host a Summer Jumpstart Program.  There is no tuition.  Bus passes, limited AISD bus transportation and snacks will be provided.  For more detailed information, please click on the "Summer Jumpstart" tab on the left side of this webpage.  **Austin ISD counselors please take note of the "Summer Jumpstart" tab as this is where you must submit referrals for participating students.  Wednesday, March 5, 2014 is the last day to submit referrals for Summer Jumpstart.
