AISD creates new family support office

Wednesday, May 12, 2021 by Tai Moses

Austin ISD has created a new office dedicated to making the school registration process easier and drawing more families back into the district. The office will be led by Alejandro Delgado, who has the title of executive director of student enrollment and advocacy. In addition to advocating for families, Delgado will facilitate the work of the Parent Engagement Support Office. Previously, Delgado was the deputy chief of staff to Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath. He has been a principal and project director for Foundation Communities as well as a principal with IDEA Allan College Prep. He started his education career at IDEA Public Schools teaching high school social studies. In a press release about the new appointment, Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde said Delgado “will focus on the district’s current enrollment trends and create a viable strategy to increase the number of families and students choosing Austin ISD. As a native of Austin and a parent in the district, I am confident he knows how to reach parents and share the many opportunities the district provides.”
