First few days on the job

Dear Austin Community:

It’s been a busy and productive week, and as we approach the weekend, I want to assure you that our school district is on the right course during this period of transition.

As interim superintendent, it will be my job to make sure our principals, teachers, counselors, librarians, bus drivers, custodians, cafeteria workers and the rest of the district’s staff continue the good work of supporting our 86,000 students and their families.
 
As April draws to a close, we are busy getting ready for graduations, finalizing the budget, preparing for the opening of three new schools and planning for a successful 2014–15 school year.
 
Thank you for your support, and have a great weekend!
 
Sincerely,
 
Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
Interim Superintendent
