AISD switches to remote learning for a week

Monday, November 30, 2020 by Tai Moses

All students in the Austin Independent School District will be moving to 100 percent remote learning for the week of Nov. 30 -Dec. 4 in order to prevent the spread of Covid-19. The decision was made by Superintendent Stephanie Elizalde following a meeting with city and county officials and Austin Public Health. In a letter to parents and staff, Elizalde explained that by going to remote instruction for the week following the Thanksgiving break, “the incubation period will have the opportunity to run its course and positive cases can be identified while safely at home.” On-campus instruction will resume on Monday, Dec. 7. Read the entire letter.
