News from Dr. Cruz: School Choice Week

Team AISD,

It's National School Choice Week, and we have a lot of great choices to celebrate!

From a student's first day of class through their senior year, Austin ISD offers rigorous and innovative programming at each of our 130 schools. 

Dual language, Early College High School, fine arts and Pre–K are among our district's many choices. 

Students can learn a second language in our dual-language classes. Early College High School participants can earn up to 60 college credit hours and an associate degree for free while they're in high school.

Award-winning band, choir, orchestra, theatre and visual arts programs fuel the creativity of fine arts students. And the youngest members of our AISD family build a strong foundation for education in Pre–K.

Of every choice at AISD, the best thing about our district is YOU. From our front desk staff who welcome families to a campus, to our teams who teach in the classroom, to those of you who work behind the scenes—the AISD family is the heart and soul of everything we do.

Want to tell the world why AISD is a great choice? Participate in our School Choice Week online campaign, using #AISDProud and #SchoolChoiceWeek.

Thank you for bringing your talent to our district and for making AISD the best choice for families!

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
