The purpose of the maps was to show the density and distribution of students enrolled in foreign language courses in Austin Independent School District (AISD) high schools and middle schools and to show the distribution of student enrollment in Spanish-language courses, as well as the density of Spanish-speaking English language learners (ELLs) in AISD high schools and middle schools.
These maps were developed to supplement findings from the Fall 2012 Pearce and Garcia Middle Schools phone survey. The maps show the distribution and density of student households in the two attendance zones, the distribution of responses to the survey questions, as well as the proportion of ethnicities in the surveyed area.
These maps provide an overview of existing dual language programs in the district for the 2011–2012 school year and the distribution of English language learners.
In November 2011, ACCESS staff distributed a questionnaire about early childhood education services participation to all Austin Independent School District’s parents/guardians of kindergarten and prekindergarten students through their classroom teacher. This report was funded through the ACCESS grant as an adhoc request and provides a district summary of the data.
