Community Conversations Version 2.0

Please join Austin ISD for community conversations regarding Version 2 of the School Changes scenario options. These conversations will focus on the scenarios recommended for implementation for the 2020–21 school year.

Come learn about the district's equity analysis and how it led to the 12 scenarios under consideration in phase one of the School Changes process. Conversations will also be centered on how the district can refine the scenarios and better support our campus communities through potential transitions.

Active Listening Sessions Version 1.0

We are listening.

Join us for a conversation on School Changes. We want your input on the preliminary scenario options to improve academics, equity and facilities across our school district. Each one is a starting point for conversations that will lead us toward finalizing scenario recommendations later this fall. The preliminary scenario options are a draft and not final.

Find your school on the list below for the meetings focused on the scenario options affecting your campus. Or, attend a districtwide meeting for a community conversation on all the scenario options.

You can also provide feedback on the scenario options by participating in ThoughtExchanges at

Community Visioning Sessions

Please join Austin ISD for a series of community visioning sessions, designed to gather feedback on the strengths and challenges of each region. Feedback from these meetings will be used to support the work of the School Changes Think Tanks and will ultimately inform the development of regional scenario options.

Meetings will be region-specific but not geographically exclusive and all are welcome. Meetings will be conducted in a come-and-go format and attendees can participate at their own pace.

If you are unable to attend one of the below meetings, you can still share your feedback via this form.
