AISD and Austin prepare for a return to school

Monday, September 28, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

With in-person classes set to resume next week, Austin Independent School District has a new learning plan and a new dashboard. The Open for Learning plan covers the phased-in approach, transportation and things like on- and off-campus activities. The dashboard, which will track positive coronavirus cases and exposures in the district, will be updated weekly. AISD will resume in-person learning on Monday, Oct. 5. The move has been met with concern from teachers and district families, who would like to delay the reopening. Education Austin has asked for schools to remain shuttered until there is a 14-day decline in new cases, a positivity rate of less than 5 percent and a transmission rate of less than 1 percent.
