Board President's Update July 24

Dear Austin ISD Community, 

I’d like to thank the thousands of you who took time out of your days last week to participate in the community forums and stakeholder meetings the district held as part of our search for a new superintendent.  

AISD held 15 districtwide community forums at 13 locations, 52 smaller stakeholder meetings and one Tele-Town Hall that saw participation from 14,000 people. 

The Tele-Town Hall was something new for AISD and we’re excited about exploring this kind of opportunity to get feedback from parents and employees in a more convenient way. 

As of July 21, 1,274 of you have taken our online survey. The deadline is 8 a.m. Aug. 15 to complete the survey and let us know what you’d like to see in a new leader for AISD.

It’s your participation in all these areas that will help make our search a success. Please continue to check our superintendent search website for updates on the timeline and process as we move forward.
