AISD conducts Northeast Austin block walk
Friday, April 9, 2021 by Tai Moses
If you live anywhere near Andrews, Harris, Pecan Springs or Winn elementary schools, Garcia Young Men’s or Sadler Means Young Women’s leadership academies, or Northeast ECHS, you may be visited by AISD volunteers this weekend. Teachers, team members and community volunteers are walking the neighborhoods in the northeast corridor of the school district “to reconnect with Austin families to learn about their education needs and priorities as well as welcome more learners to its family of schools.” The door-to-door campaign – dubbed Operation Reconnect – was designed to reconnect with district families and share information about program offerings such as free prekindergarten, fine arts, before- and after-school enrichment programs, career preparation programs and more. So if you hear a knock on your door this Saturday, April 10, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., most likely it will be a team of friendly volunteers wearing PPE and smiles on their faces.
