AISD to see new academic programming database, sometime soon

Friday, September 23, 2016 by Courtney Griffin

Austin Independent School District parents will soon be able to better maneuver the district’s many academic programming options for their children. Monday, AISD staff announced that a programming database will soon be released, ideally sometime this school year, although the exact date has not yet been determined. The database was compiled after AISD’s board of trustees requested its own list and received it at Monday’s board workshop meeting. Board documents associated with the request list the district’s magnet programs, schools of choice and other special programs as well as noting the differences between each category of programming. However, District 5 Trustee Amber Elenz pointed out that the district’s list did not include some programs and needed to be revised. Board members requested academic programming lists after realizing that many parents did not know what programming options were offered within AISD or the differences between the programs.
