News from Dr. Cruz: Joining the AISD Family

Team AISD,

I am glad that each and every one of you is part of the Austin ISD family, and I'd like to invite your students to be, too. 

This week, AISD began accepting in-district transfer requests for the 2016–17 school year. We will begin accepting out-of-district transfer requests on Feb. 1. Employees may request to transfer their student to any school in the district, regardless of whether the school is frozen.

For those of you with 3- and 4-year-olds, AISD will once again offer a tuition discount of at least $1,000 to teachers and team members who enroll their children in the Pre-K program for the 2016–17 school year.

At AISD, your child would be part of a student body whose SAT scores exceed state and national averages. Your student would also have endless academic opportunities, including our dual-language programs and early college high schools.

If your child is not currently enrolled in AISD, I hope you'll consider joining our school family. Click here for detailed information about transfers at AISD.
