Austin ISD in 2020

In the face of the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, Austin ISD is working every day to provide definitive answers regarding the 2020–21 school year. 

The board of trustees in December approved the 2020–21 school calendar that includes Aug. 18 as the first day of school for students. Given our current context, the district continues to closely monitor reports and information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about COVID-19, and we are in contact regularly with health officials from the city and county. 

The district must create a plan for next school year that prioritizes the health and safety of the AISD community, but that also meets the requirements and guidelines established by the Texas Education Agency and adheres to regulations from state, county and local health and government authorities.

AISD Re-entry Task Force

Austin ISD organized a Re-entry Task Force made up of teams from throughout the district that lead workgroups of families, community members, teachers, and campus and district-level staff from many departments. The role of the task force is to propose models that ensure staff, students and families are prepared to begin the upcoming school year under a variety of conditions.
