News from Dr. Cruz: Welcome Back!

Team AISD,

Welcome back to the start of another school year at Austin ISD! I hope you had time to relax and create lasting memories with loved ones.

My most lasting summer memory was teaching my son to drive. Only a few minutes after the lesson began, all my best practices as an educator flew out the (car) window. Step on the brake! Use your signal! Watch out! Don’t hit that truck! I was all parent. Thankfully, we survived.

As you take your best practices back to your classrooms and campuses, I want to welcome you with the action-packed convocation video. 

The video shares the new vision for AISD—Urban Education 2.0—and invites us all to be part of our district's effort to reinvent the urban school experience. You'll also meet some superheroes along the way.

Thank you for being #AISDsuperheroes. You make me #AISDproud!

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
