News from Dr. Cruz: An investment in our city

Team AISD,

An investment in Austin ISD is an investment in our city.

The Austin City Council recently approved funding to support AISD Family Resource Centers, after-school programming, parent support specialists and AISD.TV—the district's television station

The financial support will positively affect students' academic performance, and it will have an impact that extends beyond the classroom. 

Computer literacy courses for parents at Family Resource Centers will build a stronger workforce. Tutoring at after-school programs will build students' confidence and help them develop important relationships. Parent support specialists will connect families with resources they need. And upgrades to our AISD.TV studio will allow us to continue sharing great news and opportunities with our community.

Building on these services, AISD is continuing conversations with the city about additional partnerships such as a potential tax swap.

Mayor Adler and city council members know that you are doing great work, and they know that your work strengthens our city. Their show of support makes me even more #AISDProud of you.

Thank you for the passion and dedication you bring to AISD—within the walls of the classroom and beyond. Your investment in our students and the AISD community will make a difference for generations to come.

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
