Staff COVID-19 Information

Due to rapid changes in nation, state, and district ordinances and operations, this site will be updated with the most recent information. Please check back each day for resources! Thank you.

August 7, 2020:  The Austin ISD Board of Trustees voted to revise the first day of school on the current board approved calendar to September 8, 2020. The calendar begins with four weeks of remote learning and an opportunity for face-to-face instruction during the first four weeks for students who do not have access to technology or connectivity. Pending approval from the Texas Education Agency, there will be an additional four weeks that will serve as a period where students who selected on-campus instruction may return to on-campus learning in phased-in smaller groups. These plans are subject to change based on the guidance of local, state and federal health authorities and the Texas Education Agency.

The Office of Human Capital wants to thank you for your commitment to our students, your creative and collaborative thinking, and your patience as we navigate COVID-19 and the adaptations to district operations.

Our top priority is the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. We are committed to providing the support, tools and ongoing communication that you need to be successful. District departments are working collaboratively to ensure that all questions staff may have during this time are answered. 

This page will provide resources and the most up-to-date information for our valued teachers and staff regarding district operations.


Departments are consistently working to provide updates to the questions our staff have most. For the most up to date information on Benefits and Leave, Workplace Safety and Protocols, Professional Learning, and more, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page!
