AISD to start four-day summer workweek
Tuesday, June 23, 2015 by Tyler Whitson
In order to reduce costs, all Austin Independent School District campuses, including all schools and offices, will be closed this Friday and every subsequent Friday through Aug. 14. According to a Monday press release, the truncated weekly schedule “reduces energy, water and wastewater costs during the summer months” and saved the district about $716,000 last year. Offices will be open Monday through Thursday between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., with the exception of the week starting June 29, during which all offices and schools will be closed. The district will resume its regular, five-day workweek on Monday, Aug. 17, and classes will begin on Monday, Aug. 24.
