Your voice is always valuable to us, and especially now as the district continues working through reopening campuses for the 2020–21 school year. Below is a link to the final, short survey that asks your instructional model preference for your student(s) starting on October 6. Answering this survey is critical for our campus reopening efforts by helping us understand what you think is best for your student(s).
To decrease the chance of COVID-19 transmission and the need to contact trace, families can choose to stay home or come to campus to complete virtual work. After October 5, students will be assigned a learning group of classmates in a designated classroom. The period of time students are assigned a learning group will be determined and adjusted according to updates around the pandemic. Campuses will not have traditional passing periods.Breakfast and lunch will be held in the classroom. The curriculum is the same whether students are learning from home or from school.

It is not unusual to be experiencing an increase in symptoms of anxiety and/or depression right now. Go to https://seizetheawkward.org/coronavirus for ideas about how to take care of yourself, your friends, and your children.
If this is an emergency and you or someone you know is in crisis, please seek IMMEDIATE assistance during this time and call 911, Austin ISD Campus Police at 512-414-1703, or the Austin Travis County Crisis Hotline at 512-472-HELP(4357) to receive immediate crisis counseling assistance.
Project Advance College Advisors, HS Principals, Lead Counselors and all other College Access partners:
FAFSA season will be fast approaching! The FAFSA for the 2021-2022 school year GOES LIVE OCTOBER 1st. In meeting with the Project Advance College Advising Team -we agreed that we would kick off FAFSA completion by hosting a couple of Financial Aid Info Sessions district-wide; to begin sharing with seniors and their families some of the key steps that must be taken in order to access the highest amount of financial aid for college and even other post-secondary options that accept the FAFSA.
Please post/share the flyer attached.
Also from early October through mid-November with our partnership with the DTC70/Austin Chamber of Commerce, each of your campuses will be co-hosting about 15 FAFSA/TASFA VIRTUAL HELP SESSIONS for SENIORS and their families through Zoom. Once I have that flyer available to us, I will send that your way to also begin posting/promoting with your Class of 2021 families.
