AISD hosts conversations about school reopenings

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 by Tai Moses

As almost everyone knows, schools have been closed since March 13 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether or not school campuses will reopen in the fall remains an open question. Austin Independent School District has assembled a task force of staff and community members to examine the pros and cons of reopening its schools and facilities for the 2020-21 school year. As part of that planning process, the district is convening a series of eight community conversations to get community members’ input. Each conversation circle, as they are called, will start with a short presentation, followed by a one-hour conversation in small groups. “The meetings will conclude with a 15-minute facilitated question-and-answer session with academic leadership.” The full schedule of conversation circles is below. In order to attend, you will need to have Zoom installed on your computer or device.
