We are #AISDProud this week as AISD has been awarded a District of Distinction award from the Texas Art Education Association for the second year in a row.
This annual award goes to school districts that lead the way in visual arts. The school districts are recognized for promoting the arts and their outstanding leadership towards teaching.
To qualify, each district submits their best artwork, which must meet 12 out of the 14 criteria to be able to receive the award.
Once the district receives the award they receive an invitation to speak at the Administration and Supervision session at the Fall Virtual Conference on Nov. 21- 22.
“We are thrilled to bring this honor to Austin ISD for the second year in a row,” said Adam Lambert, AISD Director of Visual and Performing Arts. “We are grateful to have a supportive community and such wonderful art teachers throughout the district. All the arts play an important part in the lives of our students.”
We wish to recognize the hard work and dedication put forward by our students, parents and staff in our fine arts programs for their dedication to excellence in learning and the arts.
