Friday, April 12, 2019 by Tai Moses
Austin Independent School District is hosting a series of community engagement workshops in order to solicit the community’s input on potential school closures and consolidations, program planning and repurposing facilities. AISD staff, community members, planners and developers will participate in the panel discussions with the ultimate goal of giving more students access to what the district calls “21st-century learning spaces.” To learn more, check out AISD’s “reinvention roadmap.”
The “Academics and Economic Opportunity” panel will focus on the district’s academic priorities and response to the changing economic landscape in Central Texas:
- Tuesday, April 16, 6-8 p.m., at Bowie High School, 4103 W. Slaughter Lane
- Wednesday, April 24, 6-8 p.m., at Alternative Learning Center, 4900 Gonzales St.
