Update from AISD Board President Vincent Torres, Friday, April 11

On April 11, Vincent Torres, president of the AISD Board of Trustees, provided the following update to AISD employees, families and the community:

Dear AISD Community,

The Austin ISD Board of Trustees met this past Monday in open session and Tuesday in executive session to continue to discuss and develop a contingency plan should Dr. Meria Carstarphen be officially chosen to lead Atlanta Public Schools on April 14.

As part of our contingency plan, we have called for a special board meeting Tuesday evening, April 15, where we may consider two possible actions: naming an interim superintendent and approving a request for proposals from search firms. The public will be able to speak directly to trustees during Citizens Communication before the board takes any action at this meeting.

The board appreciates those who have taken the time to share feedback with us through the district’s new superintendent search website.

Thank you,

Vincent Torres
Austin ISD Board of Trustees
