Message from Dr. Cruz: We Appreciate our Partners at the City of Austin

Today the Austin City Council passed a resolution directing the City Manager to prioritize the existing and ongoing collaborative work concerning Austin ISD facilities and property. I am #AISDProud and grateful both for those who sponsored and supported the resolution. 

As the Austin Independent School District plans for new academic investments, which include assuring that students thrive, read and excel­­–we know the path before us will include difficult decisions. The support that the Austin City Council provided today, and has historically provided, means that Austin ISD and the City of Austin will work jointly to assure the best interest of our students and families are kept at the forefront of our decision-making process.

I encourage you to take a moment to read the Austin City Council Resolution and the joint statement from Mayor Adler and Council Member Tovo.


Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
