News from Dr. Cruz: State of the District

Team AISD,

On Nov. 5, Austin Ed Fund will host the State of the District. The theme of the event is "Inspire the Future"—a call to action to join AISD in reinventing the urban school experience.

Austin Ed Fund (formerly Austin Public Education Foundation) is a nonprofit that was created to support and enhance the work of the AISD. Hosting the State of the District is just one way the group is helping cultivate champions for AISD and strengthen community partnerships.

The State of the District will showcase stories of excellence and innovation at AISD and share ways that community members can contribute to the success of our schools. Austin Ed Fund will also publicly announce winners of the fall 2015 Innovation Grants.

If you would like to watch the State of the District, tune in to Channel 22 or livestream at beginning at 12:15 p.m. 

Whether it's the hard work of a student, the dedication of a teacher or the support of a community partner, I'm inspired by acts of excellence that make AISD strong.

As an AISD team member, you are an integral part of our future. Thanks for everything you do—you are an inspiration, and you make me #AISDproud.

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
